Abstract:

As war becomes even more complex, the need to explore its fundamental nature is no less important than in the past. In this monograph, the author has prepared the first detailed comparative study of Sun Tzus The Art of War and Clausewitzs On War, which remain the most insightful statements on this subject available to the student of military affairs. Whether or not his readers agree with his conclusions, this original study should stimulate lively debate and provide the students of U.S. war colleges and their civilian counterparts with a useful introduction to the basic texts on strategy, as well as with a point of departure for further study.
