Professor Mark Jurdjevic published two books in 2019!

Florentine Political Writings from Petrarch to Machiavelli is a selection of texts “that describes the language, conceptual vocabulary, and issues at stake in Florentine political culture at key moments in its development during the Renaissance.” Mark Jurdjevic co-edited this new book with Natasha Piano and John P. McCormick.


Machiavelli: Political, Historical, and Literary Writings presents the diversity of Machiavelli’s genres, letters, poetry, plays, comedy, history, and political theory. This book “has been carefully curated to reveal those crucial but lesser known aspects of Machiavelli’s thought and to show how his major arguments evolved within a dynamic Florentine setting.”
