The Art of War
- Sun Zi on the Art of War: The Oldest Military Treatise in the World
Translated by the highly respected authority of Lionel Giles, the book unravels the complexities of meaning found in the world's oldest military treatise.
In examing the work step-by-step, Giles pays particular attention to the subtleties of the Chinese characters (given throughout) and the interpretations offered by centuries of informed commentators.
Examples from both ancient and modern history bring alive the explanations and illustrate the remarkable timelessness of Sun Tzu's words.
