Understanding Where We're Going ..

Where the human species is moving — and knowing our place in it, our ability to shift our own and our society’s position — is one of the fundamental preoccupations of every individual. We strive, always, for purpose. Understanding that purpose, and making it effective, requires a deep knowledge of context: historical context; geographic and geopolitical context; social, military, and technological context ... and a deep comprehension of ourselves as individuals and within society.

Australian-born writer and philosopher Gregory Copley has, for four decades, advised governments and leaders around the world on issues of grand strategy and national management. His work — both open and classified — has been recognized with honors, and his books, journals, and writings have circulated in some 160 countries.

This website contains some of his writings, and details of his books. Where possible, it will give links to where some of his more recent and new books can be obtained. We will also post, when possible, some of his new essays on current and philosophical issues.

Chinese-language edition of The Art of Victory: In January 2012, the Chinese-language edition of The Art of Victory, published in traditional characters, and translated by the great Chinese strategist, Vice-Admiral Ko Tun-hwa, was published in Taipei.

Vice-Adm. Ko Tun-hwa, who died in Taipei, at the age of 89, on June 12, 2010, was a close friend and colleague of the author.

Copley noted: “The publication of the Chinese-language edition of The Art of Victory is another great monument to possibly the greatest Chinese strategic thinker of the 20th Century. Tony Ko was well into his eighties when he volunteered to translate the book into traditional Chinese characters, and had just finished the work when he passed away, a few days after we parted on our last time together, touring the Republic of China’s naval bases. He was in this translation work, and in all other things, greatly assisted by Ming Ko, his daughter, who continues to champion her father’s historical achievement through World War II, the Chinese Civil War, and the establishment of the ROC on Taiwan. But Tony Ko’s wisdom is also recognized across the Taiwan Straits, and he hoped that The Art of Victory would be valuable to both the PRC and ROC.”

The ROC Navy was also helpful in producing the new edition of the book, and Capt. Dr Laurence Linn helped bring the project to fruition.

The Chinese edition was published by Wunan Books, in Taipei, with a cover price of NT$400. It can be found at their website: http://www.wunanbooks.com.tw/searchspider.aspx?searchfor=%E5%8B%9D%E5%88%A9%E4%B9%8B%E8%97%9D%E8%A1%93&keyName=1.
