This book aims to bridge a broadly applicable and validated theory and the practical challenges that face any individual acting in the face of a power imbalance. It underpins the practical advice with a detailed sociology of action of the phenomenon known as strategy. The only thing required to use this strategy is some capacity for abstract thought for planning a strategy and some self-awareness and discipline for implementing it. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the possibilities available to the strategist, and provides a simple method of developing a strategy.

In this contribution (originally published in 1894) to the literature of chess the authors have attempted to present the elements of a new theory of play. They have confined themselves, in the main, to the exposition of that part of the system which governs the opening of a game; by suggestion, however, if not by definite statement, they hope to have laid before the reader at least the spirit of the complete theory.Leibnitz pronounced chess an exact science, Petroff placed it on a level with the integral calculus, and the great Anderssen declared that its intricacies were more abstruse than the most profound mathematics; the authors of the new theory, agreeing with this trio of distinguished scholars, are tempted to go still further, and to assert, even at the peril of being considered somewhat visionary, not only that chess is a real science, but that it may not unreasonably be regarded as symbolical of the supreme science, the science of force. If this be true, the study of chess may profitably engage the attention of the ablest intellects. Those persons who make light of the wooden puppets that run over the surface of the chess board should recollect that a frame of wires strung with wooden balls was the familiar companion of the earlier mathematicians, that the science of logarithms was perfected by means of wooden pegs and a board pierced with holes, and that Napoleon won his victories before his battles were fought, by sticking his map of Europe full of pins surmounted by divers colored balls of sealing-wax.
