Fortune is a Woman: Gender and Politics in the Thought of Niccolò Machiavelli: With a New Afterword

University of Chicago Press (1984)
Abstract
"Fortune is a woman, and if you want to keep her under, you've got to knock her around some."--Niccolò Machiavelli Hanna Pitkin's provocative and enduring study of Machiavelli was the first to systematically place gender at the center of its exploration of his political thought. In this edition, Pitkin adds a new afterword, in which she discusses the book's critical reception and situates the book's arguments in the context of recent interpretations of Machiavelli's thought. "A close and often brilliant exegesis of Machiavelli's writings."-- The American Political Science Review.
