Published in 1532, Niccolo Machiavelli's treatise, The Prince, is widely regarded as one of the most influential books on politics. In his work, Machiavelli seeks to justify rule by force, suggesting that people need stability above all else. According to Machiavelli, "It must be understood that a prince ... cannot observe all of those virtues for which men are reputed good, because it is often necessary to act against mercy, against faith, against humanity, against frankness, against religion, in order to preserve the state."
