To you understand the modern political landscape, it is important to read Machiavelli’s The Prince. It includes detailed and wise accounts of how rulers gain, retain and lose power.

A lot of his wisdom is ingrained in American values and its Constitution, so learning what he has to say is valuable to any American.
