Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The timeless wisdom of Sun Tzu's The Art of War is as effective in the modern boardroom as it was on the ancient battlefield, providing simple strategies for success and victory. Now this dual-language edition offers even greater insight by allowing readers to directly compare the Chinese characters of Sun Tzu with the highly respected English translation of Lionel Giles. Also included are commentary and historical notes from the translator to further illuminate Sun Tzu's strategy, advice, and philosophy.

Synopsis:

Known throughout history as one of the greatest works of military strategy, the Long River Press edition of The Art of War situates Sun Tzu's classic text as one of the greatest works of the Chinese philosophical canon. Rather than adapting Sun Tzu's writings for contemporary genres, this edition faithfully captures the essence of the original text, which continues to make a lasting impact on the world more than 2,500 years after its creation.
