About This Item

London: Oxford University Press, 1971. Trade Paperback. Good+. Some highlighting and underlining, otherwise Fine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Covers clean and bright. No tears, creases, or folds. Not from a library. 197 pages.

Sun Tzu's The Art of War is as timely for business people today as it was for military strategists in ancient China. Written more than 2,000 years ago, The Art of War is the first known study of the planning and conduct of military operations. These terse, aphoristic essays are unsurpassed in comprehensiveness and depth of understanding, examining not only battlefield maneuvers, but also relevant economic, political, and psychological factors. Samuel Griffith has provided much-needed modern translation of this classic, making this powerful and unique work even more relevant to the modern world. Including an explanatory introduction and selected commentaries on the work, this edition makes Sun Tzu's timeless classic perfectly accessible to modern readers.
