Machiavelli's New Modes and Ordersis 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 theDiscourses on Livyto inform and challenge its readers at every step along the way.
Harvey C. Mansfieldis the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Government at Harvard University. He is the author ofMachiavelli's Virtueand has translatedThe Prince,Discourses on Livy(with Nathan Tarcov), andAlexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America(with Delba Winthrop), all published by the University of Chicago Press.
In the only full-length interpretive study of Machiavelli'sDiscourses on Livy, Harvey C. Mansfield provides a chapter-by-chapter commentary of this controversial and ambiguous work.

This penetrating study, wrought by one of Machiavelli's foremost interpreters, uncovers the hidden intricacies of theDiscourselC*
