Kurzbeschreibung

25. September 2012
The Art of War is almost certainly the most famous study of strategy ever written and has had an extraordinary influence on the history of warfare. The principles Sun-tzu expounded were utilized brilliantly by such great Asian war leaders as Mao Tse-tung, Giap, and Yamamoto. First translated two hundred years ago by a French missionary, Sun-tzu's Art of War has been credited with influencing Napoleon, the German General Staff, and even the planning for Desert Storm. Many Japanese companies make this book required reading for their key executives. And increasingly, Western businesspeople and others are turning to the Art of War for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive situations of all kinds. Unlike most editions of Sun-tzu currently available (many simply retreads of older, flawed translations), this superb new translation makes use of the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, including the ancient "tomb text" version discovered by archaeologists at Linyi, China. Ralph Sawyer, an outstanding Western scholar of ancient Chinese warfare and a successful businessman in his own right, places this classic work of strategy in its proper historical context. Sawyer supplies a portrait of Sun-tzu's era and outlines several battles of the period that may have either influenced Sun-tzu or been conducted by him. While appreciative of the philosophical richness of the Art of War, this edition stresses Sun-tzu's practical origins and presents a translation that is both accurate and accessible.

Pressestimmen

Robert L. O'Connell, author of Arms and Men: A History of Warm Weapons, and Aggression "A tour de force. Sawyer puts this most famous of the classic Chinese military writings into context and shows that Sun-tzu was not just a solitary genius, but the product of a remarkably rich martial culture." Robin D.S. Yates, Burlington Northern Professor of Asian Studies, Dartmouth College"I am convinced that this translation...will prove to be the definitive edition for many years to come." Arther Ferrill, author of The Origins of War: From the Stone Age to Alexander the Great"Fills a serious gap for anyone interested in the history of ancient warfare...a fascinating book." -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

The Art of War is almost certainly the most famous study of strategy ever written and has had an extraordinary influence on the history of warfare. The principles Sun Tzu expounded were utilized brilliantly by such great Asian war leaders as Mao Tse-tung, Giap, and Yamamoto. First translated two hundred years ago by a French missionary, Sun Tzus Art of War has been credited with influencing Napoleon, the German General Staff, and even the planning for Desert Storm. Many Japanese companies make this book required reading for their key executives. And increasingly, Western business people and others are turning to the Art of War for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive situations of all kinds. Why has a two-thousand-year-old text proven so valuable in todays world? Because the Art of War embodies an Eastern tradition of strategy that emphasizes outwitting an opponent through speed, stealth, flexibility, and a minimum of effort. And these time-tested principles work. They have been proven on the battlefield and in the marketplace.

Unlike most editions of Sun Tzu currently available (many simply retreads of older, flawed translations) this superb new translation makes use of the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, including the ancient tomb text version discovered by archaeologists at Linyi, China. Ralph Sawyer, an outstanding Western scholar of ancient Chinese warfare and a successful businessman in his own right, places this classic work of strategy in its proper historical context. Sawyer supplies a portrait of Sun Tzus era and outlines several battles of the period that may have either influenced Sun Tzu or been conducted by him. While appreciative of the philosophical richness of the Art of War, his edition stresses Sun Tzus practical origins and presents a translation that is both accurate and accessible. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the most accurate translated Sun Tzu 18. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Ralph Sawyer's rendering published in 1994 is incredibly accurate. High on readability as well. However, typographical errors are present. Though they are not damaging to the understanding of Sun Tzu, one has to wonder how much effort the author put into his work. This is apparent after numerous re-prints and all without corrections. Didn't use much of the newly discovered text in 1972, stating that the previous original was tested throughout history. Fair enough. Excellent section on Chinese weaponry. Overall, this book is to be on any serious strategist's bookshelf. Sonshi.com

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best version available. 23. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
As far as I can tell, this is the best and most accurate translation of Sun-tzu's brilliant writings. Sawyer does a great job providing you with a great deal of background information and a ton of footnotes for clarity.

While Sawyer admits to some conjecture (even on Sun-tzu's very existance), he provides thought provoking evidence for his positions.

Sun-tzu was a military genius and his lessons can be applied in the modern world without question. Get it and live it, 'cause it's a war out there.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fine translation but... 21. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Though the translation has many notes and as far as I can see, is accurate, there is at least one thing that bothers me. In one passage on lifting an autumn "hair," this translation has "hare." Hair seems to be the correct word because all the other translations have hair. If this mistake was overlooked, you just have to wonder what else? What's strange however is that an earlier translation The Seven Military Classics from the same author has that one passage with the word "hair." Go figure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Book, Good Translation 16. April 2002
Von J. Straub - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
There are two critical things to consider when deciding to purchase a book such as the Art of War: the first being the content / author of the book and the second being the translator. This book deserves 5 stars for both. Sun Tzu's Art of War is the de facto standard on military strategy, and Sawyers translation and reference material take the work to new heights. Sawyer has a strong grasp of the material -- and discusses (through the introduction and footnotes) the times and military methods that brought about this brilliant work. The book has a number of minor typographical errors (such as lines of text that appear as the last line of one page, and the first line of the next) but overall these errors are minor annoyances at worst.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE text on Relational-Maneuver Warfare 3. Oktober 2004
Von Neal J. Pollock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
There are two basic types of warfare: attrition and relational-maneuver. This ancient text is the ultimate text on the latter. The US Army has mostly used attrition warfare. That means you throw more soldiers and weapons at the enemy than the enemy can handle. General Grant and WW II are cases in point. On the other hand the US Marine Corps is well-known for it use of relational-maneuver warfare such as Inchon in the Korean War. In relational-maneuver warfare, one can have lesser forces and still heavily damage the enemy or even win. As Clauswitz called it--one attacks the enemy's center of gravity or attacks the enemy with more/better forces at isolated points (e.g. the Finns vs. the Germans in WWII). One of the beauties of this approach is that there are far less casualties. In Desert Storm, the Iraqi communications were taken out early--an attack on a center of gravity for command and control. The principles in Sun Tzu's "Art of War" are transferable to any conflict situation as a general case because they are so high level in nature. They can be applied to football, business negotiations, etc. Unlike some, Sun Tzu recognized that winning a war is not a matter of killing all the enemy; it's a matter of imposing a nation's political will upon another. From a certain perspective, he appears to be a realist, militarist, and humanist (he tries to minimize casualties) combined.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Currently The Best Version Available 28. Januar 2003
Von Rodney J. Szasz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the best translation of Sun Tzu's work on the market. Sawyer is a deft scholar with the ability to approach the meaning most carefully in his text. Moreover the lenghty introduction to the text (three-quarters of the book) gives one a good description of the evolution of warfare in the the major dynasties of Classical China. Descriptions of everything from the development of the sword, chariot, and military organisation is included, all aspects of the the major military engagements described.
The text should therefore appeal to both those who wish to get a general outline of Chinese military history and the context that Sun Tzu (and other writers described in the book) defines his concepts of strategy.
This is a serious scholarship and there is numerous references to non-translated Chinese and Japanese first sources on the subject. Sawyer knows his stuff! There is also a full index with Chinese character translations of key concepts, events, people and places (since as any reader of Chinese script knows, there is no way the phonetic romanised spelling can convey adequate meaning). It is always good to have reference to the Chinese characters. .....
This is the translation for those who hope to take a whack at Chinese classical scholarship and military history.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too much background 3. März 2012
Von tyty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not sure if every version of this book is like this, but the introduction is half the book. The author goes through and explains EVERY detail. I, having never read the book, got extremely confused as to what was going on. After skipping halfway through the book I discovered the ACTUAL book. it was hidden deep inside. For a non-seasoned reader who just wanted some strategic reading this was rather annoying. For anyone who wants a background on the book this is a great selection. I have yet to finish it but it would appear the actual translation is in the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Art of War by Sun Tzu 7. Januar 2013
Von Captsal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When it comes to being prepared, you would be hard pressed to find more intelegence condensed in fewer pages or words. The Art of War is a must read for anyone who wants to be sucessful. You don't become sucessful by re-inventing the match, or the mouse trap. You become sucessful by immitating success; understanding the match, understanding the mouse trap, why something is sucessful and adapting those precepts to your endevors. Sun Tzu said it best; "the battle is won before the sword is drawn". That alone replaces my entire paragraph above and speaks volumes. Read this book, keep it, as I have as a reference source, and re-read it every few years. There are many useful examples of how more was accomplished with less. Read a sentence, a page, or a chapter and mull it over; you will be richer for the effort. The world belongs to the prepared mind. (Did I just quote the Boy Scouts?) No matter, I'm sure they quoted someone else. Good advice deserves repeating.
