The Art of War (Chiron Academic Press - The Original Authoritative Edition)

THE ART OF WAR (Chinese: ????; pinyin: Sunzi bingfa) is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician, and kindred to the Realpolitik of his time, termed in China as Legalism. The text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. It has been the most famous and influential of China's Seven Military Classics, and "for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name." It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.

Beyond its military and intelligence applications from earliest days to the present time, THE ART OF WAR has been applied to many fields well outside of the military. Much of the text is about how to fight wars without actually having to do battle: it gives tips on how to outsmart one's opponent so that physical battle is not necessary. As such, it has found application as a training guide for many competitive endeavors that do not involve actual combat. There are business books applying its lessons to office politics and corporate strategy. Many companies make the book required reading for their key executives. The book is also popular among Western business management, who have turned to it for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive business situations. It has also been applied to the field of education. The Art of War has been the subject of law books and legal articles on the trial process, including negotiation tactics and trial strategy.

The Essential Hayek

Nobel laureate economist F.A.Hayek firstt revolutionized economists' understanding of markets, and then profoundly challenged the public's understanding of government. Hayek is one of only a few social scientists over the past 200 years who thoroughly rethought the relationship between individual people and both the market and the state. While countless works have discussed the importance of Hayek and his ideas, none have focused on making his core ideas accessible to average people. This volume highlights and explains Hayek's basic insights in plain language to ensure that his critical ideas about the nature of society are both accessible and enduring.

Hayek's The Road to Serfdom: A Brief Introduction (Chicago Shorts)

The Road to Serfdom, F. A. Hayek's 1944 warning against the dangers of government control, continues to influence politics more than seventy years after it was turned down by three American publishers and finally published by the University of Chicago Press. A classic work in political philosophy, intellectual and cultural history, and economics, the definitive edition of The Road to Serfdom included this essay as its Introduction. Here, acclaimed Hayek biographer and general editor of the Collected Works of F. A. Hayek series, Bruce Caldwell explains how Hayek came to write and publish the book, assesses misunderstandings of Hayek's thought, and suggests how Hayek's fears of Socialism lead him to abandon the larger scholarly project he had planned in 1940 to focus instead on a briefer, more popular and political tract--one that has influenced political and economic discourse ever since.

Hayek, Mill and the Liberal Tradition (Open Access) (Routledge Studies in the History of Economics)

This book considers the relationship between Hayek and Mill, taking issues with Hayek's criticism of Mill and providing a broader perspective of the liberal tradition. Featuring contributions from the likes of Ross Emmett, Leon Montes and Robert Garnett, these chapters ask whether Hayek had an accurate reading of the ideas of Mill and Smith, as well as considering themes such as sympathy and analytical egalitarianism that play a large part in the liberal tradition, but less in work of Hayek. These chapters argue that addition of these key ideas to the Hayekian corpus leads to a far broader understanding of the liberal tradition than that provided by Hayek.

Debts, Deficits and Dilemmas: A companion workbook for students and teachers

In recent years economists have been re-examining their understanding of macroeconomics in the light of the global financial crisis that began in 2007-08. Did they really understand the problem of asset bubbles? Were they blind to the issues arising from financial innovation? Five years after the 2008 bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, The Economist published a series of briefs on the financial crisis andits aftermath, which were later published as a book under the title Debts, Deficits and Dilemmas.

This free companion workbook, which is aimed at both economics students and their teachers, includes questions and exercises that students can work through - either on their own or through classroom debate - to help them gain a good understanding of the financial crisis and what has followed it.
