Strategy: Past Theories, Modern Practice book
In some professions, a si ngle classical work has long served as the cornerstone upon which later generations of scholars and practitioners could build their own theories. For novices, such classical treatises provide an insightful point of departure and help to define an area of study; for experts, they represen t a st andard for t he evaluation of al l other studies in the field. Examples of such treatises are Machiavelli’s The Prince in the study of politics; Thucydides’ The History of the Peloponnesian War in history; Newton’s Principia in science; and Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations in economics.
