This classic Chinese text, the earliest known treatise on war, offers strategy and tactics that can be applied to every type of human conflict. Central to Sun Tzu's philosophy is the concept of using deception and superior intelligence to minimize risk, which has made his book required reading at military, business, and law schools around the world. With a Foreword by B.H. Liddell Hart and a 74-page Introduction, this deluxe edition--beautifully presented in a sumptuous silk hardcover--is a standout offering in the successful Art of Wisdom series.
Samuel B. Griffith served during World War II with the US Marines in the Pacific. He obtained his Ph.D. in Chinese military history at New College, Oxford University, and is the translator of Mao Tse-Tung's "On Guerrilla Warfare."
