Written in the 6th century BC, Sun Tzu's The Art of War is still used as a book of military strategy today. Napoleon, Mae Zedong, General Vo Nguyen Giap and General Douglas MacArthur all claimed to have drawn inspiration from it, and even beyond the world of war, business and management gurus have also applied Sun Tzu's ideas to office politics and corporate strategy. Using a new translation by James Trapp and including editorial notes, this edition of The Art of War is printed on high quality paper and bound by traditional Chinese book-making techniques. It contains the full 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 how to exploit your enemy's weaknesses. Of immense influence to great leaders across millennia, The Art of War is a classic text richly deserving this exquisite edition. About the Author James Trapp is the author of Chinese Characters: The Art and Meaning of Hanzi. A Chinese language graduate of the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, he teaches Mandarin, is an Education Officer on the China Collection at the British Museum and worked for many years in Hong Kong as a dealer in Chinese art.

“Don't buy”

There are many versions of The Art of War available. I wanted only Tsun Tzu's sayings. Too much filling from the author and one third of the book occupied by the sayings of Wu Shu (should have been shown in the... More
