 The New York Review of Books: MACHIAVELLIAN MOMENTS
I am supposed to have denied this by emphasizing his concern for agrarian values and his terror of a system of government based on the financing of a national debt.
In the last chapter of The Machiavellian Moment—which by the way does not state any set of aims with which the whole book was written—I said nothing whatever about Jefferson's views on a liberal-capitalist economy.
This was not an attack on trade, commerce, or liberal capitalism; in an older language, Jefferson was hostile to "the monied interest," not "the trading interest," in ours to finance capitalism, not mercantile or industrial capitalism.

I am writing a research paper about the essential elements of Machiavellian political philosophy, which should include a responce to geopolitical realities of 15th and 16th century Italy.
We see this in common parlance when we notice that the adjective "Machiavellian" is used by writers across disciplines as often as a synonym for "cynical", "inhumane", or "coldly manipulative".
Whether that's right or wrong, it makes it hard in the extreme to recognize a good example of a nation employing only Machiavellian political philosophy, because quite often it simply indicates the author's distaste for the political strategem under consideration.

By the evidence found from Napoleon's life and accomplishments it can said that he was not Machiavellian in nature, which can be demonstrated by numerous accounts as well as some suggested characteristics given by Machiavelli, to support this theory.

Apparently Napoleon was not a good friend considering when he was exiled the second time his friends that had been with him since the beginning were said to have killed him.

 LiteratureClassics.com -- Essay -- "King Henry & Prince Hal: Machiavellian Monarchs"
His son, Prince Hal, mirrors his father in his socially-Darwinian worldview and both reveal their Machiavellian dispositions by way of their actions, but especially, through their words.
In order to get the throne, Henry and his friends pretend to be loyal (as they were obliged to be by their oaths of allegiance) only to break that loyalty to increase their own power; and thus, they inherit the world they created.
Hal is an unemotionally manipulative Machiavellian character right from the start, a man who is, in effect, using his friends as means to a political end, without much regard for their feelings, following closely in his father’s footsteps.

It includes the origins of the basic premise and a wealth of exciting developments, described by an international team of authors from the fields of anthropology, psychology, and zoology.
An evaluation of more traditional approaches is also undertaken, with a view to discovering to what extent Machiavellian intelligence represents a complementary concept or one that is truly an alternative.
These topics could be explored fruitfully using the book as a reader in an interdisciplinary seminar with graduate students from psychology, anthropology, and zoology and would surely provide for a lively and thoughtful exchange of ideas and opinions.
