Tolstoy On War Book Description :

In 1812, Napoleon launched his fateful invasion of Russia. Five decades later, Leo Tolstoy published War and Peace, a fictional representation of the era that is one of the most celebrated novels in world literature. The novel contains a coherent (though much disputed) philosophy of history and portrays the history and military strategy of its time in a manner that offers lessons for the soldiers of today. To mark the two hundredth anniversary of the French invasion of Russia and acknowledge the importance of Tolstoy’s novel for our historical memory of its central events, Rick McPeak and Donna Tussing Orwin have assembled a distinguished group of scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds—literary criticism, history, social science, and philosophy—to provide fresh readings of the novel. The essays in Tolstoy On War focus primarily on the novel’s depictions of war and history, and the range of responses suggests that these remain inexhaustible topics of debate. The result is a volume that opens fruitful new avenues of understanding War and Peace while providing a range of perspectives and interpretations without parallel in the vast literature on the novel.

The Art of War on War Book Description :

Widely acknowledged as the two most important works on strategy and war, " The Art of War " by Sun Tzu and " On War " by Carl von Clausewitz have long been studied on a discrete basis, with the assumption that the theses they advanced were fundamentally at odds. This fact alone tempts the professional strategist to compare these great works in their entirety in order to discover the extent to which they are actually contradictory, similar, or complementary. It is, however, easy to understand why strategists might be reluctant to undertake such a comparison. Surely few scholars are equally accomplished in the fields of Chinese history, culture, and language and European history at the turn of the 19th century; and even if such distinguished scholars were to exist, it is even less likely that they would be professional strategists as well. In view of such obstacles, this essay adheres to a content analysis of these two texts while avoiding a more general historical, philosophical, cultural or linguistic analysis. Thus, the respective texts are quoted extensively in the interest of allowing Clausewitz and Sun Tzu to speak for themselves. As the reader will see, this approach has yielded some interesting but perhaps unexpected conclusions. This book also contains the full text of "The Art of War " by Sun Tzu in its entirety.
