Publisher's Description

Another influential Penguin Classic-now available in our signature black-spine dress

For more than two thousand years, Sun-Tzu's The Art of War has provided military leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics, managing troops and terrain, and employing cunning and deception. An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone for the Western struggle for survival and success, whether in battle, in business, or in relationships. With this volume's crisp, accessible translation and lively, learned introduction, even those readers familiar with The Art of War will experience it anew, finding it more fascinating-and more chilling-than ever.
