The Solari Report

This Thursday, I will be speaking with Dr. Victor H. Mair, Professor of Chinese Language and Literature at the University of Pennsylvania about his marvelous translation of the classic military treatise, The Art of War: Sun Zi’s Military Methods.

One of the questions of greatest interest to our subscribers is "What are the best books to help me understand and navigate in the 21st century?" The Art of War is one of them. Its opening lines read:

"Warfare is a great affair of state.
The field of life and death.
The way of preservation and extinction.
It can not be left unexamined."

The Art of War is an ancient Chinese text, written by a collection of authors during a period known as the late Warring States (475-221 BC). It was translated into French in the 18th century and into English in the 19th century. Its importance in the teaching of military strategy in the West was established after America’s defeat in Vietnam and reflects the growing importance of China in global geopolitics and the competition for natural resources.

Remember to e-mail or post your questions for us before Thursday night, or ask them live through our web access. You can listen now through the web as well - no need to call in if you are coming in from other continents.
