Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: 1502 and Renaissance Italy is in turmoil. Backed by the money and power of his aging father, Pope Alexander VI, Cesare Borgia is soaring like a military comet, carving out a state for the Borgia dynasty. From Florence, a young diplomat, one Niccolo Machiavelli, is sent out to shadow him. The relationship he forges with the dynamic, violent young warrior allows him - and us - to see history in the making. At the same time, the pope's beloved daughter, Lucrezia, is on her way to a third dynastic marriage in the state of Ferrara, where she must quickly produce an heir for the Este family in order to survive.
