250 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1570625522 "At the core of the ancient strategy manual known as 'The Art of War' is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human life. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, agg ression 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 see k s t o b ring the conflicting views around to a larger perspective. This new and unusually faithful translation preseves the enigmatic quality of the original - allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millenia after this oral t ra di t io n w as first set down. Line-by-line commentary and three extensive essays reveal the broader implications of Sun Tzu's teachings and how they can be applied to everyday circumstances. As a result, the classic's basic vocabulary takes o n n ew me ani ng . 'W ar' is any situation that demands hard choices about creation and destruction, life or death. The 'state' is the system in which we live - our household, our culture or society, or our own mind. 'Defense' ensures the integri ty o f o ur boun dar ie s an d allows life to flourish within them. And 'victory' lies in bringing others around to embracing a larger view - one that includes their own - without ever going to battle."
