9781929194889: Sun Tzu's Art of War Plus Strategy against Terror: Ancient Wisdom for Today's War

Two books in one, the only award winning translation of Sun Tzu's The Art of War plus our award-winning stanza-by-stanza adaptation applying his principles to the war on terror. This second edition updates the book a decade after its first release to address recent changes in the Middle East including the recent invasion of Iraq by ISIS fundamentalists. This award-winning book adapts Sun Tzu's timeless principles to address today's military challenge of terrorism. Foreword Magazine's 2006 Book of the Year Finalist in Philosophy, Like all our adaptations, Sun Tzu's Art of War is on the left-hand pages with our application to terror on the facing right-hand pages. Unlike partisan views of the war on terror, this book follows Sun Tzu's principles stanza by stanza, examining the relevant issues as he would. What emerges in a unique picture of the war on terror that you cannot get anywhere else. For example, Sun Tzu tells us that all war are based on economics and forces us to examine the economic underpinnings of terrorist attacks. What is the real battle underlying terrorism? How does attacking civilians generate money for the terrorists? What will happen if the West refuses to engage terrorism.

About the Author:

Sun Tzu, also known as Sun Wu or Sunzi, was an ancient Chinese military strategist believed to be the author of the acclaimed military text, The Art of War. Details about Sun Tzu s background and life are uncertain, although he is believed to have lived c. 544-496 BCE. Through The Art of War, Sun Tzu s theories and strategies have influenced military leaders and campaigns throughout time, including the samurai of ancient and early-modern Japan, and more recently Ho Chi Minh of the Viet Cong and American generals Norman Swarzkopf, Jr. and Colin Powell during the Persian Gulf War in the 1990s.
