<p><b>A delightfully illustrated version of Sunzi’s classic The Art of War by bestselling cartoonist C. C. Tsai</b></p><p>C. C. Tsai is one of Asia's most popular cartoonists, and his editions of the Chinese classics have sold more than 40 million copies in over twenty languages. This volume presents Tsai's delightful graphic adaptation of Sunzi's<i> Art of War</i>, the most profound book on warfare and strategy ever written--a work that continues to be read as a handbook for success not just by military commanders but also by leaders in politics, business, and many other fields.</p><p>Conceived by a Chinese warrior-philosopher some 2,500 years ago, <i>The Art of War</i> speaks to those aspiring to rise through the ranks and help build successful countries. How can that goal best be achieved, and what is the role of warfare, if any, in the process? What are the powers and limits of the general in command? How can you win without going to war? Sunzi's answers to these and other questions are brought to life as never before by Tsai's brilliant cartoons, which show Sunzi fighting on dangerous ground, launching a surprise attack, spying on his enemies, and much more.</p><p>A marvelously rich introduction to a timeless classic, this book also features a foreword by Lawrence Freedman, one of the world's leading authorities on military strategy, which illuminates how <i>The Art of War</i> has influenced Western strategic thought. In addition, Sunzi's original Chinese text is artfully presented in narrow sidebars on each page, enriching the books for readers and students of Chinese without distracting from the self-contained English-language cartoons. The text is skillfully translated by Brian Bruya, who also provides an introduction.</p>

Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<BR />  <BR /> At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<BR />  <BR /> In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” <I>The Best We Could Do</I> brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.</DIV>

Diana Gabaldon’s brilliant storytelling has captivated millions of readers in her bestselling and award-winning Outlander saga. Now, in her first-ever graphic novel, Gabaldon gives readers a fresh look at the events of the original Outlander: Jamie Fraser’s side of the story, gorgeously rendered by artist Hoang Nguyen.<br /> <br />After too long an absence, Jamie Fraser is coming home to Scotland—but not without great trepidation. Though his beloved godfather, Murtagh, promised Jamie’s late parents he’d watch over their brash son, making good on that vow will be no easy task. There’s already a fat bounty on the young exile’s head, courtesy of Captain Black Jack Randall, the sadistic British officer who’s crossed paths—and swords—with Jamie in the past. And in the court of the mighty MacKenzie clan, Jamie is a pawn in the power struggle between his uncles: aging chieftain Colum, who demands his nephew’s loyalty—or his life—and Dougal, war chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, who’d sooner see Jamie put to the sword than anointed Colum’s heir.<br /><br />And then there is Claire Randall—mysterious, beautiful, and strong-willed, who appears in Jamie’s life to stir his  compassion . . . and arouse his desire. <br /> <br />But even as Jamie’s heart draws him to Claire, Murtagh is certain she’s been sent by the Old Ones, and Captain Randall accuses her of being a spy. Claire clearly has something to hide, though Jamie can’t believe she could pose him any danger. Still, he knows she is torn between two choices—a life with him, and whatever it is that draws her thoughts so often elsewhere. <br />    <br />Step into the captivating, passionate, and suspenseful world of <b>The Exile</b>, and experience the storytelling magic of Diana Gabaldon as never before.<br />

It’s action, adventure and conspiracy on a cosmic scale in Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps Vol. 5: Twilight of the Guardians, as writer Robert Venditti (The Flash) and artists Patrick Zircher (Superman – Action Comics) and Jack Herbert (Superwoman) team up Hal Jordan with his greatest allies against his deadliest foes!<br /><br /> The word is out: Sinestro has returned. Wherever this tyrannical former Lantern goes, hell is sure to follow. And when Hal Jordan travels to Earth to bring his former partner to justice, hell is exactly what he finds. Another of his oldest enemies is under attack from a surprising source, and he’s unleashed all his powers to save his skin. If that means harnessing the evil entity called Parallax to corrupt the world’s greatest hero, Superman, so be it.<br /><br /> But an even greater threat than a mad Man of Steel awaits the Emerald Knight. From the darkest depths of the cosmos, the all-powerful Controllers have returned, threatening to settle their ancient grudge against the Guardians once and for all. It will take a strike force of Earth’s first four Lanterns—Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner—to save their old mentors and the universe. If the Lanterns fail, all of creation will pay the price.<br /><br /> Collects Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #30-31 and #33-36.
