For more than 2,000 years, Sun Tzu's The Art of War has provided leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics, troop management, and the use of cunning and deception. An elementary part of Chinese culture, it has become an example for the West in the struggle for survival and in the pursuit of success, whether in battle, in business or in relationships. Now, in this crisp and accessible new translation, John Minford brings this vital aspect to life for today's readers. A lively and learned introduction, which includes chronologies and supplementary readings in an authoritative volume. Even readers who are already familiar with Sun-Tzu will experience it again, finding it more fascinating - and more chilling - than ever.

Little is known about Sun Tzu (544-496 BC) and his life. during the Warring States period after the decline of Zhou's dysnasty, but his classic "The Art of War" was one of the central works of Chinese literature for 2,500 years.
John Minford studied Chinese at Oxford and Australian National University and has taught in China, Hong Kong and New Zealand. He edited (with Geremie Barme) Seeds of Fire: Chinese Voices of Conscience and (with Joseph S. M. Lau) Chinese Classical Literature: An Anthology of Translations. He has translated numerous works from Chinese, including the last two volumes of the Penguin Classics edition of Cao Xueqin's 18th century novel The Story of the Stone and the martial arts fiction of contemporary Hong Kong novelist Louis Cha.
