Some brief overview of this book

When Lionel Giles began his translation of Sun Tzus ART OF

WAR, the work was virtually unknown in Europe. Its introduction

to Europe began in 1782 when a French Jesuit Father living in

China, Joseph Amiot, acquired a copy of it, and translated it

into French. It was not a good translation because, according to

Dr. Giles, It contains a great deal that Sun Tzu did not

write, and very little indeed of what he did.

The first translation into English was published in 1905 in

Tokyo by Capt. E. F. Calthrop, R.F.A. However, this translation

is, in the words of Dr. Giles, excessively bad. He goes

further in this criticism: It is not merely a question of

downright blunders, from which none can hope to be wholly exempt.

Omissions were frequent; hard passages were willfully distorted

or slurred over. Such offenses are less pardonable.
