How to Wield Power in the Modern World

Jonathan Powell

Description

The New Machiavelli is a gripping account of life inside 'the bunker' of Number 10. In his twenty-first century reworking of Niccolo Machiavelli's influential masterpiece, The Prince, Jonathan Powell - Tony Blair's Chief of Staff from 1994 - 2007 - recounts the inside story of that period, drawing on his own unpublished diaries.

Taking the lessons of Machiavelli derived from his experience as an official in fifteenth-century Florence, Powell shows how these lessons can still apply today. Illustrating each of Machiavelli's maxims with a description of events that occurred during Tony Blair's time as Prime Minister, The New Machiavelli is designed to be The Prince for modern times.

Customer Reviews

An interesting take on the Blair years

Unlike other members of the Blair court Jonathan Powell hasn't gone for a standard auto biography but has sought to tell his tales from the inner circle by relating them to Machiavelli's teachings. On the whole it works - though at times it is a little laboured.

It's not as good as his previous book on Northern Ireland but has lots to interest anyone who follows modern British politics
