Book Club Of The Air - The Prince

GUESTS: David Wootton Professor of History and Political Science, Brunel University, Twickenham, England When Niccolo Machiavelli wrote "The Prince" in 1517, his tale of politics and statecraft so shocked his contemporaries that his name became synonymous with the devil. He's now regarded as a pioneer of political science. You probably read the cliff notes in school, now we hope you've read the book. Join the Book Club of the Air discussion about Machiavelli's "The Prince", on the next Talk of the Nation, from NPR News.
