The Art of War: The Denma Translation, Sun Tzu

Regular price €12.99

The Art of War by Sun Tzu, is the most important and most famous military treatise in Asia for the last two thousand years.

At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human life. Since, as Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese military strategist, teaches that aggression and response in kind can lead only to destruction, we must learn to work with conflict in a more profound and effective way. Crucial to this strategic vision is knowledge - especially self-knowledge - and a view of the whole that seeks to bring conflicting views into a larger perspective.

This new and unusually faithful translation carefully preserves the enigmatic quality of the original - allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millennia after this oral tradition was first set down. Line-by-line commentary reveals the broader implications of Sun Tzu's teachings and how they can be applied to everyday circumstances.
