Howard begins his monograph with captivating quotations from Machiavelismo degollado por la Christiana Sabiduría de España y Austria, a work by Claudio Clemente published in 1637. Clemente's polemical tone nicely sets the stage for the discussion that follows and for Howard's expressed goal: to demonstrate "the observable appropriation of key Machiavellian concepts" (5) by Spanish political writers who simultaneously masked those conceptual adoptions with anti-Machiavellian rhetoric. Multiple early modern political writings are incorporated to lay a clear foundation for, and solid support to, Howard's contentions.
