Description - The Art of War: A New Translation by Michael Nylan by Sun Tzu
Sun Tzu's ancient book of strategy and psychology has as much to tell us today as when it was first written 2,500 years ago. In a world forever at odds, his rules for anticipating the motivations and strategies of our competitors never cease to inspire leaders of all kinds.
Michael Nylan, in her provocative introduction, sees new and unexpected lessons to be learned from The Art of War-in business ventures, relationships, games of skill, academic careers, and medical practices. Strategy, like conflict is woven into society's very roots.
Nylan's crisp translation "offers a masterly new evaluation of this classic work, which balances the overtly military content with a profound and thought-provoking analysis" (Olivia Milburn). Readers newly engaging with ancient Chinese culture will be inspired by Nylan's authoritative voice. Informed by years of scholarly study, Nylan is uniquely placed to introduce readers to Sun Tzu's classic work through her detailed annotations on culture and the intricacies of translating ancient Chinese into modern English. She proves that Sun Tzu is more relevant than ever, helping us navigate the conflicts we know and those we have yet to endure.
