Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This translation--accompanied by the translators' in-depth essays and illuminating line-by-line commentary--offers a fresh perspective on this ancient Chinese text. Here, Sun Tzu's strategic principles of warfare are seen as universally relevant.

Review:

"This luminous translation gave me a much clearer understanding of Sun Tzu's deeper purpose — to make war unneccesary." James A. Autry, co-author of Real Power: Business Lessons from the Tao Te Ching

Review:

"The most sophisticated and accessible version I've seen." Andrew R. Wilson, United States Navel War College

About the Author

The warrior-philosopher and master strategist Sun Tzu, about whom little is known, compiled The Art of War more than two thousand years ago. Legend has it that he was known for the brilliant campaigns he led around the time of Confucius. His work was memorized and passed down orally, before eventually being copied onto bamboo strips and passed around.
