Machiavelli's 'The Prince' as a Satire: An Exploratory Look at Machiavelli's Works to Determine His True Political Inclinations

This paper discusses a research study on Machiavelli's 'The Prince' as a satire. The author argues that 'The Prince' challenges all of Machiavelli's other works and what we know of his life, and that this inconsistency and the knowledge of Machiavelli's opinions give evidence that perhaps 'The Prince' is a satire.

The Public Perception of the Cult of Lenin Based on Archival Materials (open access)

The Public Perception of the Cult of Lenin Based on Archival Materials

This book presents a study of collective representations in Soviet Russia concentrates on perceptions of Lenin's image from a socio-anthropological, rather than political, view. In addition to Communist Party information, official documents, memoirs and folklore, newly opened secret reports of the Soviet political police are used for the first time. The book analyzes the development of the cult from Lenin's lifetime up to the process of "de-Leninization" in the 1990s. Much of the research concerns the perception of Lenin's death and the decision to embalm his body, the campaign called "the Lenin enrollment", renaming of Petrograd and organization of "Lenin Corners". The book also presents new material devoted to Lenin museums, along with archive documents and never-published photographs.
