The Art of War The Denma Translation

£21.99

Product description

This box set of book plus 3 CDS is in very good condition. The book is not marked or annotated. The CDS have not been played by us but appear to be unscratched. The slip case is undamaged

At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human experience. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can lead only 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 picture of the whole that seeks to bring conflicting views into a larger perspective. This book-and-CD set allows readers to engage with The Art of War in its original medium-the spoken word. The book includes the complete translated text and three original essays exploring its key teachings. Produced under the direction of the Denma Translation Group's James Gimian, the audio program contains the complete Art of War text, read by Carl Williams (disc 1) and selections from the text interspersed with the Denma group's original commentary, read by Carrington MacDuffie (discs 2 and 3). This fresh and unusually faithful translation preserves the enigmatic quality of the original-allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millennia after this oral tradition was first set down. The commentary by the translators reveals the broader implications of Sun Tzu's teachings and how they can be applied to everyday circumstances. 3 CDs, with a 176-page book
