The Art of War, Paperback

The Art of War Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



For more than two thousand years, Sun-tzu's "The Art of War" has provided leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics and management strategies.

An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone for the Western struggle for survival and success, whether in battle, in business, or in relationships.

Now, in this crisp, accessible new translation, eminent scholar, John Minford brings this seminal work to life for today's readers.

Capturing the literary quality of the work, Minford presents the core text in two formats: first, the unadorned ancient words of wisdom ascribed to Sun-tzu; then, the same text with extensive running commentary from the canon of traditional Chinese commentators.

A lively, learned introduction and other valuable apparatus round out this authoritative volume.
