Overview

Here is a collection of ancient Chinese maxims on strategy, battlefield tactics, and deception—in the spirit of such classics as The Art of War and The Book of Five Rings—made fresh and relevant with contemporary examples and explanation. The origin of The 36 Strategies of the Martial Arts is unknown; however, the text is a synthesis of various military principles, political expressions, and even folk sayings, some of which are from sources that date back 1,500 years. Professor Hiroshi Moriya supplies clear and succinct explanations of each saying and illustrates them with examples not only from Chinese literature and history but also from events in Europe and modern business affairs. This book will resonate with anyone interested in a classic approach to anticipating an opponent’s moves and emerging victorious—in martial arts, business, sports, or politics.
