Description

Featuring the Chinese text on the left and the English translation on the right, this is a beautifully bound book that
would make a unique gift or collector's item.

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
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, and has been nominated for two prizes in the
British Book Design & Production Awards 2011. 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.
