The Art of War: A New Translation (Chinese Bound Classics)

Sorry, this item is out of stock
Using a new translation by James Trapp and including editorial notes, this bilingual edition of The Art of War lays the original Chinese text opposite the modern English translation.

Written in the sixth century BC, Sun Tzu's The Art of War is still used as a guide for military strategy today. Napoleon, Mao Zedong, General Vo Nguyen Giap, and General Douglas MacArthur all claimed to have drawn inspiration from it. Beyond the world of war, business and management gurus have also applied Sun Tzu's ideas to office politics and corporate strategy. This edition contains the full original 13 chapters on such topics as laying plans, attacking by stratagem, weaponry, terrain, and the use of spies. Sun Tzu addresses different campaign situations, marching, energy and exploiting your enemy's weaknesses. Of immense influence on great leaders across millennia, The Art of War is a classic text richly deserving this exquisite edition.
