Description:

This is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world.  Written over 2500 years ago, it is still popular today.  It is read in military circles and in the world of modern business management. This new translation, translated by James Trapp, is beautifully produced using traditional Chinese bookbinding techniques, using a method that was developed during the Ming Dynasty, and remained in use until the adoption of Western binding techniques in the early 1900s.  In traditional Chinese binding, single sheets of paper are printed on one side only, and each sheet is folded in half, with the printed pages on the outside.  The book block is then sandwiched between two boards and sewn together through punched holes close to the cut edges of the folded sheets.Featuring the Chinese text on the left and the English translation on the right, this is a beautifully bound book that would make a unique gift or collector's item.

Sun Tzu was born around 544 B.C. Almost nothing is known about his life except that he was a Chinese military general who helped the King Ho-lu capture the city of Ying, bringing about the fall of the Ch'u state in 506 B.C.E. From this, Sun Tzu became known throughout the country as a wise and respected leader. Sun Tzu is best known today for a collection of essays called The Art of War, the oldest military treatise in the world. The text became known through translations by Father J. J. M. Amiot, a French Jesuit priest. The principles in the book are varied and include: "All warfare is based on deception," "The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting," and "The art of war is governed by five constant factors (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven; (3) Earth; (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline)". Sun Tzu is believed to have died in 496 B.C.E.
