European Version of Chanakya’s “Arthasasthra” !
7 February 2018
Niccolo Machiavelli is the “Chanakya” of Europe !
Having read “Art of War” & “Arthasasthra” I was still able to enjoy Niccolo’s observations of Politics, War, Emperors & Republic.
It’s a very condensed read & it’s not written in simple English, so following the chapters was not that easy.
The famous examples of Roman Emperors & Other Famous Conquerors illustrated by Niccolo were to the point but his examples with the Politics of Italy when he was alive was very hard to follow since it had too many characters.
The Latter Chapter was a mini-history of Italian Politics of the day which I mostly skipped through.
But the points put forth by Niccolo rings true to even this day & age; students, businessmen & politicians alike have something here to read & ponder !
