Some brief overview of book

For more than two thousand years, Sun-tzus The Art of War has provided leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics, managing troops and terrain, and employing cunning and deception. But its underlying philosophy lends itself to infinite applications an elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone for the Western struggle for survival and success, whether in battle or in business or in relationships. Now, in his crisp, accessible new translation, the highly regarded scholar and translator John Minford brings this seminal work to life for todays readers.

Capturing the literary quality of The Art of War - its lucid, epigrammatic, almost poetic style - as well as its philosophical and strategic content, Minford presents the core text in two different formats. First, the unadorned thirteen chapters allow readers to form their own first impressions of the ancient words of wisdom ascribed to Sun-tzu. Then the same text, with extensive running commentary from the canon of traditional Chinese commentators and others, provides context and subtext to the work.

In a lively, learned introduction, Minford explores the life and times of Sun-tzu and considers how best to read and understand the work today. Chronologies, suggested readings, and other valuable apparatus round out this authoritative volume. Even those readers familiar with The Art of War will experience it anew, finding it more fascinating - and more chilling - than ever.
