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 separateindices (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.

?The published bibliography will exist until online sources provide greater depth and breath of coverage for humanistic topics. This bibliography with its chronological order, indexed by authors, titles, topical subjects and/or names, and works by Machiavelli, offers the chronological depth and interdisciplinary breath an online search would not provide. The annotations are thoughtful, and the major European scholars, from Olschki to Eco, are represented. . . . Recommended for research collections.?-Choice
