About the Translator:James Trapp took his degree in Chinese at SOAS, University of London, specializing in Bronze Age art and archaeology and early Buddhist sculpture. He currently works part time coordinating the China schools' provision at the British Museum, and also as a consultant supporting the integration of China studies into the UK school curriculum.
Twenty-Five Hundred years ago, Sun Tzu wrote this classic book of military strategy based on Chinese warfare and military thought. Since that time, all levels of military have used the teaching on Sun Tzu to warfare and civilization have adapted these teachings for use in politics, business and everyday life.The Art of Waris a book which should be used to gain advantage of opponents in the boardroom and battlefield alike.

Sun Tzu said: .Let your plans be dark, and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt..

Written in the 6th century BC, Sun Tzu.s The Art of War is still used as a book of military strategy today. Napoleon, Mae Zedong, General Vo Nguyen Giap and General Douglas MacArthur all claimed to have drawn inspiration from it since it was first translated into French in 1782. And beyond the world of war, business and management gurus have also applied Sun Tzu.s ideas to office politics and corporate strategy.

This beautifully illustrated collector.s edition is ideal for anyone who wants to outthink and outflank the competition, and its small size and hardcover make it a portable addition to any readers. collection. With chapters on Laying Plans, Waging War, Attack by Strategem, Tactical Dispositions, Energy, Weak Points and Strong, Maneuvering, Variation in Tactics, The Army on the March, Terrain, The Nine Situations, Attack by Fire, and The Use of Spies, the book provides countless useful metaphors for nearly every modern situation in which there is innate competition.

By studyingThe Art of War, a reader can both become educated on the strategies used in warfare for hundreds of years, and also become prepared for interactions, negotiations, and business situations of all kinds.
