A definitive treatise on the code of the samurai--revised and with a new introduction Upholding the samurai code both on and off the battlefield is one of the essential tenets of bushidō, the Way of the Warrior—and Budōshoshinshu is a definitive treatise on living in accordance with the samurai code. When it comes to books on samurai philosophy, the Edo-period classic Hagakure is iconic to contemporary readers, but Budōshoshinshu, which was written during same period, was equally influential at the time. Many scholars consider Hagakure, which was influenced by Zen, to be the most radical and romantic of samurai texts, while Budōshoshinshu is more measured and practical, owing to its heavy Confucian influence. Taken in tandem, they provide a range of insights on the role of the individual within the samurai order—both addressing the warrior’s role in times of peace and emphasizing the importance of living selflessly. Written by Daidoji Yūzan, a Confucian scholar who descended from a long line of prominent warriors, Budōshoshinshu comprises 56 pithy instructive essays for young samurai on how to live morally, with professional integrity and a higher purpose, and to carry on the true chivalrous tradition of bushidō. Budōshoshinshu is imbued with classic Confucian philosophy, centered on living one’s life with sincerity and loyalty.

Strategy and Change is an engaging meditation on the application of strategy to all facets of human interaction. Of equal interest to the business person, military theorist, martial artist or anyone negotiating the uncertainties of the changing world.How do you achieve success and prevail in a chaotic world? Chinese strategists have grappled with this fundamental question for centuries. Chinese thought advocates understanding the natural order of the world in order to harmonize and flow with it. One of the key ideas that permeates both The Art of War and the I Ching and even the martial arts is that success is achieved by blending with and adapting to the constant change manifesting around us. By aligning oneself with the changing circumstances, opportunity and success unfold naturally.Strategy and Change looks at these ideas by examining military strategy and its connection with the I Ching (the Classic of Change) and the internal martial art Ba Gua Zhang (Eight Diagram Palm).Strategy and Change includes discussions of:* The Eight Intentions/Dispositions - a unique, flexible and organic system of strategic thinking used for centuries.* Examples of successful strategies from history's great commanders including Alexander, Napoleon, Shaka Zulu, Hannibal, Belisarius, Sun Tzu and Mao Tze Tung.* I Ching theory and its relevance to Military Strategy and martial arts.* An analysis of The 36 Stratagems, a Chinese primer of strategy.* Advice from the renowned Chinese strategist Zhuge Liang, whose insights into strategy and leadership are widely studied by Asian businessmen today.

Brahm applies Sun Tzu's Art of War, the ultimate guru's statement of military strategy and the Thirty–six Strategies, a collection of sayings which capsulize strategic prowess in ancient Chinese history, to modern–day negotiating situations in China, both commercial and political.

Harro von Senger gilt als DER Experte für chinesische Planungskunst - insbesondere für die "36 Strategeme", die er im Westen bekannt gemacht hat. Die 36 Strategeme sind "Techniken der List" in Gestalt von Sprachformeln wie "Das Schaf mit leichter Hand wegführen" oder "Den dürren Baum mit Blüten schmücken". So gut wie jeder Chinese kennt sie und wendet sie an, während ihre Bedeutung hierzulande unterschätzt oder gar ignoriert wird. "In unserem europäischen Kulturkreis müssen wir lernen, listensensibler zu sein und die List nicht von vornherein zu verteufeln, sondern sie als etwas zum Alltag Gehörendes anzuerkennen. ... Im Chinesischen wird übrigens für die Worte List und Weisheit dasselbe Schriftzeichen benutzt." Harro von Senger

In order to understand Bruce Lee, we must look beyond Bruce Lee to the artist's intricate cultural and historical contexts. This work begins by contextualising Lee, examining his films and martial arts work, and his changing cultural status within different times and places. The text examines Bruce Lee's films and philosophy in relation to the popular culture and cultural politics of the 1960s and 1970s, and it addresses the resurgence of his popularity in Hong Kong and China in the twenty-first century. The study also explores Lee's ongoing legacy and influence in the West, considering his function as a shifting symbol of ethnic politics and the ways in which he continues to inform Hollywood film-fight choreography. Beyond Bruce Lee ultimately argues Lee is best understood in terms of "cultural translation" and that his interventions and importance are ongoing.
