The Art of Peace: Balance Over Conflict in Sun-Tzu's the Art of War

The Art of Peace: Balance Over Conflict in Sun-Tzu's the Art of War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new translation of the strategy classic The Art of War restores the authentic meaning of the original work by showing how finding balance rather than doing battle is the true means to overcoming adversity.

The Art of Peace is drawn from the ancient Taoist work The Art of War by Sun-tzu-it is, in effect, the Tao of Peace. This version brings an entirely fresh yet textually sound interpretation to the many translations of The Art of War by emphasizing the true slant of the original text: balance over conflict.

By newly translating Sun-tzu's strategy classic, Philip Dunn provides the peaceful warrior with methods of getting in touch with the inner and outer nature of silence and vigilance that has been forgotten over millennia of war.

Synopsis:

A new translation of the ancient Chinese study, The Art of War, offers a peaceful way of looking at conflict, focusing on self-awareness as a way of balancing both positive and negative aspects of nature.
