A new Machiavelli book

Chris Patten. "Prince of Renaissance Realpolitik." Review of Philip Bobbitt, The Garments of Court and Palace: Machiavelli and the world that he made. Atlantic Books. The Tablet (20 July 2013) 18.

Patten is far more positive in his approach to Machiavelli than anyone else I have read - but I must say I have read very little on Machiavelli: some pieces by Fred Lawrence, and recently that other review that seemed quite neutral. See Harvey C. Mansfield, Review of Corrado Vivanti's Niccolo' Machiavelli, Princeton, The Wall Street Journal (1 July 2013) 29, and my blog entry
