This comprehensive bibliographic guide to the books, monographs, articles and editions, translations, reviews, and dissertations on this important Renaissance writer provides the much-needed, annotated research source for scholarship and criticism published between 1935 and 1985. Research published after 1985 and available in annotated or abstracted form through computer searches is cited in an appendix. Annotations cover bibliographies, biographies, general and specific criticism, and new primary materials. It is an important and significant book, sure to provide scholars with a guide through the Florentine secretary's writings for the next several decades. Peter Bondanella Professor of Italian Studies, Indiana University

Those studying Niccolo Machiavelli have long endured the unavailability of a single, complete, interdisciplinary bibliographic guide to the vast number of books, articles, and reviews on the Renaissance writer and thinker who profoundly influenced the development of modern thought. This monumental bibliography provides the much-needed and comprehensive annotated research source for scholarship and criticism published on the Florentine between 1935 and 1985. To make this reference as current and complete as possible, an unannotated appendix cites research published after 1985 that is available in annotated or abstracted form through computer searches. Niccolo Machiavelli surpasses both Norsa's extensive but unannotated bibliography covering the years 1740-1935 and Fido's more recent survey which omits many articles and overlooks important studies in the social sciences especially in the last thirty years.

Using a systematic, uniform, and easily accessible format, the volume, which covers more than 50 years of Machiavelli criticism, presents complete descriptions of the works with all bibliographic data. The descriptive summaries encompass the entire range of modern critical and scholarly study in all languages, including bibliographies, biographies, general and specific criticism, and new primary materials such as manuscripts. Included in this wealth of materials are books, monographs, articles, editions, translations, reviews, and dissertations. Arranged chronologically by year and alphabetically within each year the bibliography's user-friendly format includes reviews immediately following the documentation for the book or article in question. Keyed to the annotations, four separate indices (author, title, subject/name, and Machiavelli's works) enhance access to the large and varied amount of work on Machiavelli. The volume will implement the research efforts of both Machiavelli scholars and those in related general and specific fields.
