"Beginning with the founding of modern nation-states after the Meiji Restoration and the Risorgimento, Samuels traces the developmental dynamic in both countries through the failure of early liberalism, the coming of fascism, imperial adventures, defeat in wartime, and reconstruction as American allies. Highlights of Machiavelli's Children include new accounts of the making of postwar Japanese politics - using American money and Manchukuo connections - and of the collapse of Italian political parties in the Clean Hands (Mani Pulite) scandal.

Previous biographies of the so-called 'first Englishman in Japan' (excluding Clavell's fantasy figure of John Blackthorn in Shogun), most notably P. G. Rogers and Richard Blacker earlier this century, did not have access to the more recent excellent researches of scholars such as Derek Massarella, Anthony Farrington, Michael Cooper and Charles Boxer. This study, therefore, aimed as much at the general as the specialist reader, can justifiably be considered as the most authoritative biography to be published to date, as well as providing a valuable new focus on the period, especially with regard to trade and political alliances in both Europe and Japan right up to the time of Japan's sakoku (national isolation). William Adams grew to manhood in a violent and turbulent era of European history. A 'European' before the term was coined, he spent a decade in the service of the Dutch, most notably aboard the ill-fated five-vessel Mahu and de Cordes fleet which in 1598 set out to circumnavigate the world but ended in disaster with Adams and his stricken ship the Liefde alone reaching landfall off Japan's southern island of Kyushu at Oita in April 1600. He was one of only 18 survivors out of an original crew of 110. Remarkably, Adams, now in his thirties, rose to favour with the hegemon, later shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu and lived in, and traded from, Japan for two decades. He acted as unofficial adviser to Ieyasu, as well as being a shipbuilder, cartographer, diplomatic negotiator, trader and hatamoto (bannerman) under the Tokugawa shogunate.
