Liberal thinker or immoral pragmatist? You decide.... Machiavelli has been among the most commented upon, criticized and feared thinkers of the modern world. Infamous for his support of brutality and repression as valid political instruments, he is often portrayed as the pantomime villain of political theorists. In this whirlwind tour of Machiavelli´s writings and eventful life, Nederman highlights the complexities in his thought, showing that he actually advocated democracy as much as dictatorship, debate as much as violence, depending upon prevailing political conditions. 1.

What´s the first thing you think of when you hear the word budget? It´s a meager little word, one that all too often comes after tight. Maybe you think of this word as an adjective, something to describe a cheap and substandard car or hotel. Budget brings to mind rationing, a kind of money diet. If you´re like many people, budgeting is something you do with a kind of deflated spirit: budgeting means bargain bin quality and the sad sense that what you want is going to be just out of reach. This book will try an altogether different approach to budgeting. It´s a pity that the idea of living within one´s means should be experienced as such a deficit. This book will try to show that when you apply the principles of minimalism to budgeting, you are neither in a state of self-denial nor trying to survive a financial scrape. In fact a minimalist budget is a particular approach to abundance and fulfillment that may seem counterintuitive to most. Undoubtedly, what came into your mind when you heard the word budget was simple: money. Money is a thing to be feared, to be saved, to be celebrated when it´s there and mourned when it isn´t. Budgeting, we are told, is necessary. When you live in a world where there is always one more thing to buy, being cognizant of the fact that you don´t have endless resources is just the practical thing to do. However, budgeting can be much more than this. To put it simply, money is only one of the resources that we should be managing in our lives and possibly not even the most important one. As humans it is our lot to deal with being finite beings: We have only so much time to spend on this earth, only so much time that we are allotted each day, only so much energy that we can give away before we run into a deficit. 1.

What makes a president great? Academics, journalists, and popular historians agree: our greatest presidents are the ones who confronted a national crisis and mobilized the entire nation to face it. That’s the conventional wisdom. The chief executives who are celebrated in textbooks and placed in the top echelon of presidents in surveys of experts are the bold leaders - the Woodrow Wilsons and Franklin Roosevelts - who reshaped the United States in line with their grand ´´vision” for America. Unfortunately, along the way, these ´´great” presidents inevitably expanded government - and shrank our liberties. As the twentieth-century presidency has grown far beyond the bounds the Founders established for the office, the idea that our chief executive is obliged to ´´preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” has become a distant memory. Historian and celebrated Reagan biographer Steven F. Hayward reminds us that the Founders had an entirely different idea of greatness in the presidential office. The personal ambitions, populist appeals, and bribes paid to the voters with their own money that most modern presidents engage in would strike them as instances of the demagoguery they most feared - one of the great dangers to the people’s liberty that they wrote the Constitution explicitly to guard against. The Founders, in contrast to today’s historians, expected great presidents to be champions of the limited government established by the Constitution. Working from that almost forgotten standard of presidential greatness, Steven Hayward offers a fascinating off-the-beaten-track tour through the modern presidency, from the Progressive Era’s Woodrow Wilson to Barack Obama. Along the way he serves up fresh historical insights, recalls forgotten anecdotes, celebrates undervalued presidents who took important stands in defense of the Constitution, and points the way to a revival of truly constitutional go 1.
