The Art of War is one of the oldest books on military strategy in the world. Like a work of mathematics or 'science, much of the work is dedicated to defining its concepts in what has been described as a series of formulas. It is the first and one of the most successful works on strategy and has had huge influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu' was the first to recognize the importance of positioning in strategy and that, position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a tod6 list, instead it requires quickly responding appropriately to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a competitive environment, competing plans collide creating situations that no one plans. This book concludes that the only way to bring about a lasting peace and prevent more insurgencies rising up in the future is to build a state that attends equally to the interests of Art of War.
