Machiavelli's new modes and orders : a study of the Discourses on Livy / Harvey C. Mansfield.

Chicago : University of Chicago Press, 2001.

Abstract: "Machiavelli's New Modes and Orders" is the only full-length interpretive study on Machiavelli's controversial and ambiguous work, "Discourses on Livy." These discourses, considered by some to be Machiavelli's most important work, are thoroughly explained in a chapter-by-chapter commentary by Harvey C. Mansfield, one of the world's foremost interpreters of this remarkable philosopher. Mansfield's aim is to discern Machiavelli's intention in writing the book: he argues that Machiavelli wanted to introduce new modes and orders in political philosophy in order to make himself the founder of modern politics. Mansfield maintains that Machiavelli deliberately concealed part of his intentions so that only the most perceptive reader could see beneath the surface of the text and understand the whole of his book. Previously out of print, Mansfield's penetrating study brings to light the hidden thoughts lurking in the details of the "Discourses on Livy" to inform and challenge its readers at every step along the way.

Le Glay, Marcel.

A history of Rome / Marcel Le Glay, Jean-Louis Voisin, Yann Le Bohec ; translated by Antonia Nevill.

Cambridge, Mass., USA : Blackwell, 1996.

Abstract: This volume is an up-to-date survey of the history of Rome. Spanning over 1300 years, the narrative covers the earliest recorded settlement in the eighth century BC through the establishment of the Roman Republic and transition to empire, to Rome's decline in the late-fourth and fifth centuries AD. Throughout the book, political overview is balanced with an analysis of social and economic change, as well as religious and cultural life. The authors present these developments within a critical framework, introducing the reader to the key historical debates and issues of the period. They place particular emphasis on the importance of interpreting the varied source material, such as numismatic, archaeological and, especially, literary evidence.
