The art of war by Sunzi ( Book )
304 editions published between 1910 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 13,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written in China more than 2,000 years ago, Sun Tzu's classic The Art of War is the first known study of the planning and conduct of military operations. These terse, aphoristic essays are unsurpassed in comprehensiveness and depth of understanding, examining not only battlefield maneuvers, but also relevant economic, political, and psychological factors. Indeed, the precepts outlined by Sun Tzu can be applied outside the realm of military theory. It is read avidly by Japanese businessmen and in fact was touted in the movie Wall Street as the corporate raider's bible.In addition to an excellent translation of Sun Tzu's text, Samuel Griffith also provides commentaries written by Chinese strategists, plus several thought-provoking essays on topics such as the influence of Sun Tzu on Mao Tse-tung and on Japanese military thought, the nature of warfare in Sun Tzu's time, and the life of Sun Tzu and other important commentators. Remarkable for its clear organization, lucid prose, and the acuity of its intellectual and moral insights, The Art of War is the definitive study of combat

The complete art of war by Sunzi ( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Presented here together for the first time are the greatest of the ancient Chinese classics of strategic thought: The Complete Art of War. Probably the most famous work of strategy ever written, Sun Tzu's Art of War has sold millions of copies in many languages around the world. Lost for over two thousand years and only recently recovered, the Military Methods of Sun Pin (Sun Tzu's great-grandson) is a brilliant elaboration on his ancestor's work. Only The Complete Art of War brings the wisdom of these two ancient sages into a single volume and gives the reader a unique opportunity to master the essentials of Chinese thought on strategy, organization, and leadership." "The Sun family writings on strategy have proven their value through the ages, and they continue to reward careful study. By unveiling the complex, often unexpected, interrelationships of armies locked in battle, they reveal the enduring principles of success in the struggle of life itself. With a practical index to the essential principles of strategy, and Ralph Sawyer's thoughtful chapter-by-chapter commentaries, The Complete Art of War is designed to bring the reader new insights into the nature of human conflict." "Whether it is playing the game of politics or building a successful marriage, closing a deal or managing a large organization, making war or even making peace, The Complete Art of War stands as one of the ultimate guides to a deeper understanding of human affairs."--Jacket

L'Art de la guerre by Sunzi ( Book )
37 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in French and Catalan and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Art de la guerre est le premier traité de stratégie au monde. Rédigé avec le Ve siècle avant J.C., il développe des thèses originales, qui s'inspirent de la philosophie chinoise ancienne. Considérant la guerre comme une réalité inévitable, il montre comment la réflexion peut mener à la victoire, comment l'analyse des faiblesses de l'ennemi peut fonder une tactique, si l'on sait les exploiter, et même les aggraver ; il met l'accent sur la dimension psychologique du combat, sur le rôle de la ruse et de la fuite. Ses idées, ignorées dans les époques de guerre totale et les conflits frontaux, ont retrouvé une actualité en inspirant les grandes guérillas anticoloniales chinoises et vietnamiennes, notamment, et sont aujourd'hui reprises par les stratèges asiatiques et amé ricains de la guerre économique. -- Back cover

Master Sun's Art of war by Sunzi ( )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"P. J. Ivanhoe is one of the English-speaking world's foremost translators and interpreters of classical Chinese philosophical texts. His translation of the Sunzi Bingfa reads beautifully, adorned only by sobering photographic plates of the famed terracotta army of the first Qin emperor that turn one back to the text in a properly reflective mood. The Introduction and endnotes are blessedly spare, providing just the right amount of interpretive scholarship to assist comprehension of the text, while not interfering with its intrinsic simplicity, clarity, and profundity.". --Sumner B. Twiss, Dist

Sun Tzu and the art of modern warfare by Mark McNeilly ( Book )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Long acknowledged as a classic text on strategy, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has been admired by leaders as diverse as Mao Zedong and General Norman Schwartzkopf. However, written two thousand years ago, the book can often be hard to fathom." "Now Mark McNeilly, author of Sun Tzu and the Art of Business, which made Sun Tzu accessible to the business executive, has extracted six concepts most applicable to modern warfare, making them easy to understand and apply to military situations. Drawing on historical examples, McNeilly shows how these six principles might be used in wars of the future - limited actions, regional conflicts - and how they can provide insight into current affairs, such as the future course of China's increasingly important strategic and military role in the world. He describes how to win the information war, how to lead by example, and how to use alliances to defeat the opponent. Perhaps the most important lesson to be learned from Sun Tzu, especially for strategists who want to maximize their resources, is how to "win without fighting." And, should fighting be unavoidable, victory should be achieved in a manner that minimizes losses, leaving the victor stronger and ensuring a lasting peace." "Including the full text of The Art of War in the popular Griffith translation, with cross-references to quotations used in the book, Sun Tzu and the Art of Modern Warfare unlocks these elusive secrets for anyone interested in strategy and warfare, whether they are professional soldiers, military history buffs, or business executives."--Jacket
