  • The Art Of War In Action

    Having spent some time reflecting on the management of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Jamaica, my thoughts zeroed in on The Art of War, written over 2,000 years ago and a classic which historians attribute to Chinese general, military strategist and philosopher Sun Tzu.
