The art of war by Sunzi( Book )

81 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,610 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 Classic text on Communist Guerrilla warfare includes an excellent introduction by Brigadier General Samuel Griffith USMC who was also the translator. "In 1937 Mao ... wrote a succinct pamphlet that has become one of the most influential documents of our time ... the first systematic analysis of guerilla warfare ... The widespread applicability of Mao's doctrine stems from his realization of the fundamental disparity between the agrarian, peasant-based society of China and that of pre-revolutionary Russia, or any urban society ... he had to employ tactics and appeals appropriate to the peasant."
L'art de la guerre by Sun zi( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Point de vue de l'éditeur: Il y a vingt-cinq siècles, dans la Chine des " Royaumes combattants ", était rédigé le premier traité sur " l'art de la guerre ". Sur son auteur, Sun Tzu, l'histoire ne fournit que quelques traits biographiques et peut-être sont-ils mêlés de légende. Mais son ouvrage, d'une concision admirable et toujours perceptible malgré les adjonctions des commentateurs, a été et demeure au centre de la pensée militaire d'Extrême-Orient. A la différence de Clausewitz, Sun Tzu ne fait pas de la grandiose bataille d'anéantissement le sommet de l'art du stratège. Si l'on peut détruire l'ennemi, on se jette sur lui ; mais la " duperie ", c'est-à-dire la guerre totale du mensonge, peut faire mieux encore... Il faut lire Sun Tzu comme un grand classique empreint de sagesse, mais aussi comme la clé d'une meilleure compréhension de la pensée politique chinoise d'aujourd'hui
On guerrilla warfare by Zedong Mao( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first documented, systematic study of guerrilla warfare, Mao Tse-tung's 1937 text remains the definitive guide to orchestrating revolution in developing countries. Based on Mao's own experiences in fighting Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists and his interpretations of the classic strategies of Sun-tzu, On Guerrilla Warfare outlines the tactics that have proven effective around the world, from Vietnamese jungles to Middle Eastern deserts. Prescient in his thinking and concise in his expression, Mao conceived of guerrilla operations as a complement to traditional warfare. He explains why guerrilla activities should be integrated into conventional military procedures and discusses the organization and operation of guerrilla units. His unorthodox strategies transform disadvantages into benefits: using retreat as an offensive maneuver; indoctrinating locals for employment as spies; and compensating for lack of firepower with speed, surprise, and initiative

Sun Tzu and the art of business : six strategic principles for managers by Mark McNeilly( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To hand down the wisdom he had gained from years of battles, more than two millennia ago the famous Chinese general Sun Tzu wrote the classic work on military strategy, The Art of War. Because business, like warfare, is dynamic, fast-paced, and requires an effective and efficient use of scarce resources, modern executives have found value in Sun Tzu's teachings. But The Art of War is arranged for the military leader and not the CEO, so making connections between ancient warfare and today's corporate world is not always easy. Now, in Sun Tzu and the Art of Business, Mark R. McNeilly shows how Sun Tzu's strategic principles can be successfully applied to modern business situations." "Here are really two books in one: Mark McNeilly's synthesis of Sun Tzu's ideas into six strategic principles for the business executive, plus the entire text of Samuel B. Griffith's popular translation of The Art of War." "By using modern examples throughout the book from GE, Microsoft, AT & T, BMW, Southwest Airlines, FedEx, and many others, he illustrates how, by following the wisdom of history's most respected strategist, executives can avoid the pitfalls of management fads and achieve lasting competitive advantage."--Jacket
