About This Book

Sun Tzu's classical treatise "The Art of War" is still held to have relevance for the military of the 21st century. This attractive illustrated volume is a republication of the 1963 translation by Samuel B. Griffith. The introduction discusses the 4th-century BCE life of Sun Tzu, the nature of warfare at that time and the use of Sun Tzu's ideas then and later, including their importance to Mao Zedong. With colour plates, a translation of Wu Ch'i's 'Art of War' (a treatise roughly contemporary with the more famous work of Sun Tzu), biographical summaries of the historical commentators, bibliography and index.
