The ancient Chinese military classic that is widely admired today by both military and business strategists--in a new translation, with new notes and commentary.
Tzu, Sun ; Harris, Peter
For more than two thousand years, The Art of War
has provided leaders with essential tactical and management advice. An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone in the West for achieving success, whether on the battlefield or in business. This Everyman's Library edition features a brilliant new translation by Peter Harris. Alongside the pithy and powerful ancient text, Harris includes:
--Extracts from the canon of traditional Chinese commentators who have explained Sun Tzu's wisdom over the centuries
--A chronology of Chinese dynasties
--An illuminating introduction on the warrior-philosopher Sun Tzu and the role of The Art of War
in history and today
