Summary
"Machiavelli wrote The Prince as a political handbook for Lorenzo de' Medici, the powerful prince of Florence. He was not interested in abstract right or wrong, he wanted effective government." "Who better to write The New Prince than political strategist Dick Morris? Using polls and pragmatism, Morris reversed Clinton's fortunes, stole the Republican agenda, and changed the face of American politics. For more than twenty years, he has worked as a political adviser to many politicians of both parties." "This practical guide to the machinery of politics takes a shrewd look at our current political situation and suggests what we, politicians and ordinary citizens alike, must do in order for our government to thrive: rise above party, focus on issues, and stay positive."--BOOK JACKET
