Worth Reading -- Machiavelli as Revolutionary

I recently read this lecture on The Prince, given in October 2006 by Professor Steven B. Smith of Yale. It is an excellent read, especially the portion referencing Robert Kagan's article "Cowboy Nation," where Dr. Smith suggests that the American republic, and all others like it, are by their very nature expansionist and aggressive.
