Donald Hodgess nuanced analysis of The Discourse of Livy reveals a subversive republicanism in Machiavellis theorizing that is at odds with the demoliberalism often perceived as the works primary political agenda. Hodges follows this strand of republicanism through history, providing a fascinating account of how these two political philosophies vied with each other throughout much of modern history in conflicts that culminated in the Russian and American Revolutions.

A unique treatment of Machiavellis political agenda, its implementation by numerous historical actors, and its legacy, professionalism, Deep Republicanism examines aspects of Machiavellis work that have often been overlooked. It also sheds light on Machiavelli himself, whose famously devious and crafty writing style was partly motivated by his political vulnerability in fifteenth century Florence.

Hodgess study is both a novel examination of the historical influence of Machiavellis thought and a testament to the enduring power, influence, and subtlety of one of the best-known Western political philosophers.
