The Art of War: The Denma Translation  by Sun Tzu -- Translation, Essays & Commentary by the Denma Translation Group


 
At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human life.  Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can only lead 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 seeks to bring conflicting views around to a larger perspective.  This new and unusually faithful translation carefully preserves the enigmatic quality of the original, allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millenia after this oral tradition was 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.
