Summary
"...Breaking Bad, The Godfather, The Walking Dead, Charlie Wilson's War, House of Cards, Argo, and The Departed, are replete with illustrations that teach Machiavelli's critical principles, including the need to caress or annihilate, learning 'how not to be good,' why it is better to be feared than loved, and how to act as both the lion and the fox. Examples from contemporary mass media are used in this book to exemplify the tactics Machiavelli advocated and to comprehensively demonstrate that Machiavelli intended for government actors and those exercising power to fight for a greater good"--P. 4 of cover
