New Machiavelli

The New Machiavelli
by Jonathan Powell

The New Machiavelli is a gripping account of life inside ‘the bunker’ of Number 10. In his twenty-first century reworking of Niccolo Machiavelli’s influential masterpiece, The Prince, Jonathan Powell – Tony Blair’s Chief of Staff from 1994 – 2007 – recounts the inside story of that period, drawing on his own unpublished diaries.

Taking the lessons of Machiavelli derived from his experience as an official in fifteenth-century Florence, Powell shows how these lessons can still apply today. Illustrating each of Machiavelli’s maxims with a description of events that occurred during Tony Blair’s time as Prime Minister, The New Machiavelli is designed to be The Prince for modern times.

“The New Machiavelli” is a novel written by H. G. Wells, first published in 1911.

Contents include: “The Making Of A Man”, “Concerning A Book That Was Never Written”, “Bromstead And My Father”, “Margaret In London”, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.

The New Machiavelli
by Alistair McAlpine

Ignore the latest buzz about the kinder, gentler world of new age, team-based management. It’s dog-eat-dog out there, and the sooner you realize it, the better. The New Machiavelli mines Machiavelli’s The Prince for the timeless rules and stratagems that can help today’s business rulers survive and prosper in the jungle of greed and treachery that is commerce. Alistair McAlpine enriches Machiavelli’s text with scenarios from modern business, offering keen new insight into what motivates people. You’ll learn the reasons why:
* Loyalty is not a reliable factor in the workplace
* Great power is held by the “little people” in a business
* It is better to spread power than to centralize it
* You should never believe your own publicity

Fail to read it at your peril.

“For most of my lifetime politicians have been trying to tell businessmen how to go about their tasks … Both groups, however, will enjoy this shrewd commentary on Machiavelli’s timeless principles of skullduggery.”-Margaret Thatcher

“Anyone working in corporate America who doesn’t find, read, and master Alistair McAlpine’s amazing new guidebook to the art of politics in business may soon find themselves self-employed.” -Charles Saatchi, Partner, M&C Saatchi

“Written in a style, like Machiavelli’s own, at once didactic and charming… A work which is a standing satirical reproof to the various management manuals which promise corporate success.”-Times Literary Supplement

H.G. Wells – The New Machiavelli
by H. G. Wells

Herbert George Wells was born on September 21st, 1866 at Atlas House, 46 High Street, Bromley, Kent. He was the youngest of four siblings and his family affectionately knew him as ‘Bertie’. The first few years of his childhood were spent fairly quietly, and Wells didn’t display much literary interest until, in 1874, he accidentally broke his leg and was left to recover in bed, largely entertained by the library books his father regularly brought him. Through these Wells found he could escape the boredom and misery of his bed and convalescence by exploring the new worlds he encountered in these books. From these humble beginnings began a career that was, after several delays, to be seen as one of the most brilliant of modern English writers. Able to write comfortably in a number of genres he was especially applauded for his science fiction works such as The Time Machine and War of the Worlds but his forays into the social conditions of the times, with classics such as Kipps, were almost as commercially successful. His short stories are miniature masterpieces many of which bring new and incredible ideas of science fiction to the edge of present day science fact. Wells also received four nominations for the Nobel Prize in Literature. Despite a strong and lasting second marriage his affairs with other women also brought the complications of fathering other children. His writings and work against fascism, as well as the promotion of socialism, brought him into increasing doubts with and opposition to religion. His writings on what the world could be in works, such as A Modern Utopia, are thought provoking as well as being plausible, especially when viewed from the distressing times they were written in. His diabetic condition pushed him to create what is now the largest Diabetes charity in the United Kingdom. Wells even found the time to run twice for Parliament. It was a long, distinguished and powerfully successful career by the time he died, aged 79, on August 13th, 1946.
