The Art of War (Book and Audio-CD Set) (New)
by Denma Translation Group
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
Binding: Hardcover with CD
Book ID: 9781590304761, 1590304764
Usually available in 3-5 days
At the core of this ancient strategy manual is the understanding that conflict is an inescapable part of human experience. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can lead only to destruction, we must learn to work with conflict in a more profound and effective way. Crucial to this strategic vision is knowledge -- especially self-knowledge -- and a picture of the whole that seeks to bring conflicting views into a larger perspective.
This book-and-CD set allows readers to engage with The Art of War in its original medium -- the spoken word. The book includes the complete translated text and three original essays exploring its key teachings. Produced under the direction of the Denma Translation Group's James Gimian, the audio program contains the complete Art of War text, read by Carl Williams (disc 1) and selections from the text interspersed with the Denma group's original commentary, read by Carrington MacDuffie (discs 2 and 3).
This fresh and unusually faithful translation preserves the enigmatic quality of the original -- allowing us to discover innumerable insights in its lines millennia after this oral tradition was first set down. The commentary by the translators reveals the broader implications of Sun Tzu's teachings and how they can be applied to everyday circumstances.

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.
In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...
