For millennia the classics of Chinese martial strategy have been studied and their lessons applied with devastating success by warlords and military generals and today this timeless advice is analyzed as much for its application in the boardroom as on the battlefield-­as thousands of Asian businessmen can attest.­Chinese Martial Code provides clear, easy to follow translations of three of the most respected works on strategy in history, featuring a masterful translation of The Art of War of Sun Tzu—the most respected of all works of military strategy—as well as the less famous but equally wise Precepts of Ssu Ma Jang Chu and Wu Chi On the Art of War.­Additionally, A. L. Sadler's translation is converted here into Pinyin for the first time and the original Chinese language versions of these classic texts are also included, making this title a treasure to Chinese history and military scholars as well. The text is also copiously annotated, placing its sage advice in perspective for . . .

Samurai are best known for taking life—but here is a samurai doctor’s prescription for how to preserve life, and to make yours a long and healthy one. Unlike other samurai of his time, the samurai Kaibara Ekiken (1630–1714) was concerned less with swordsmanship than with how to maintain and nurture the healthy mind and body upon which martial techniques and philosophy depended. While serving as the chief medical doctor and healer to the Kuroda clan, he came to a holistic view of how the physical, mental, and spiritual lives of his patients were connected. Drawing from his medical practice, the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, and his life experience, Ekiken created this text as a guide to sustaining health and stamina from youth to old age. Ekiken’s advice regarding moderation, food and drink, sleep, sexual activity, bathing, and therapeutic practices is still amazingly intuitive and appropriate nearly three hundred years after this book was written.

Il codice del potere (Arthasastra) è una quintessenza di equilibrio, saggezza e strategia che ha superato indenne, per vigore ed efficacia, la prova di ventiquattro secoli. Una scienza progredita e spregiudicata che esplora la natura del potere, del successo e della prosperità economica: come ottenerli, consolidarli, goderne e governare le responsabilità che comportano. Kautilya, il suo geniale autore, detto l'Aristotele e il Machiavelli hindu, distillò verità senza tempo sull'acquisizione e l'esercizio del potere, divenendo un maestro d'insuperata insidia nell'arte del potere. Al tal punto che i suoi insegnamenti resero possibile a Candragupta, un condottiero dalle oscure origini, la rapida ascesa al trono e la creazione del primo potente impero indiano. Così come diresse i sovrani dell'antichità, oggi quest'opera è considerata fondamentale per l'addestramento dei manager e della classe dirigente indiana. Un capolavoro strategico-­politico-­militare, sconosciuto in Occidente, che . . .

Our very existence on earth depends on God’s Compassion, yet its meaning eludes us. Sri Chinmoy explains that to understand Compassion, we must first recognise it; and, to recognise it, we must first experience it.

Negli anni cruciali tra le due guerre, Rabindranath Tagore conduce una riflessione lucida e appassionata sul trionfo della cultura occidentale e sulla sua imposizione ai popoli dell’Asia. È il pensiero di un poeta che sa scavalcare le trappole dell’ideologia, di una mente in perfetto equilibrio tra la fedeltà alla propria tradizione e la conoscenza profonda di quella europea. Per Tagore è l’anima stessa dell’Occidente – i valori del Cristianesimo e della grecità – ad essere per prima tradita dalla deriva di una modernità fondata sugli idoli del successo e del denaro. In Giudizio, un articolo del 1925, l’analisi dei rischi del progresso, la condanna del nazionalismo e dell’imperialismo e lo smascheramento dell’arroganza civilizzatrice dell’Occidente si accompagnano alla denuncia del sentimento di sudditanza espresso da chi ha subìto la colonizzazione. L’incontro di Oriente e Occidente, una conferenza pronunciata a New York nel 1930, precisa l’ideale di un nuovo umanesimo, . . .
