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, having been written two thousand years ago, the book can be somewhat daunting to the modern reader. Mark McNeilly, author of Sun Tzu and the Art of Business (OUP, 2011), which made Sun Tzu accessible to the business executive, has extracted the six concepts most applicable to modern warfare, making them easy to understand and apply to military situations. Drawing on a wealth of fascinating historical examples, McNeilly shows how these six principles might be used in wars of the future---both conventional wars and terrorist conflicts---and how they can provide insight into current affairs, such as the war on terrorism and China's increasingly important strategic and military role in the world. This updated edition reflects on all that has happened in the past ten years, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the challenge of Iran, the "Arab Spring," and the continued rise of China. Each chapter includes brand new examples to explain important concepts in The Art of War. Including the full text of The Art of War in the popular translation by Samuel Griffith, 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.

"Genevieve Tan Shu Thung, a mindful seeker in her own right, takes a bold 'fourth-dimensional?' approach in this book to shed insightful light in elaborating some of the salient yet elusive gems found in that timeless classic. In lucid terms with scholarly presentation Genevieve explains how Sun Tzu's strategic philosophy has become increasingly pertinent to modern times. Her unique prose delivered succinctly in a compelling style helps the reader to comprehend and appreciate the very thoughts of Sun Tzu in a meaningful manner. She provides a gentle interpretation of the esoteric concepts envisaged by the illustrious sage.

A wonderful read " -- "Osman Johnson: Shadow Minister for Grand Bahama & Attorney" "A brilliantly innovative application of Sun Tzu's classical treatise. Focusing upon the nature of the Self, it describes the psychological battlefield upon which life goals are fought for, then advises the reader upon strategies to attain them. Clearly set out with practical illustrations, having this book in your armoury ensures your goals WILL be achieved." -- "Maurice Thurman: Author & Retired Teacher"
