If you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win numerous battles without a single loss. Sun Tzu, The Art of War Written in the 6th century BC, Sun Tzus The Art of War is still used as a book of military strategy today. Napoleon, Mae Zedong and Douglas MacArthur all claimed to have drawn inspiration from it. And beyond the world of war, modern-era business and management gurus have also applied Sun Tzus ideas to politics and corporate strategy. This illustrated dual-language edition not only presents the original Chinese characters with James Trapps translation on the facing page, it also tests Sun Tzus ideas against history. Each of the 13 chapters includes a new commentary giving examples of how Sun Tzus wisdom has been borne out on the worlds battlefields. When, for example, has information provided by spies changed the course of a battle? How has history shown Sun Tzus ideas on the importance of terrain in conflict to be true? And where can we best find examples of strategic warfare being waged? From the ancient world to the 20th century, the battles featured will be illustrated with colour battle maps, paintings and artworks. Of immense influence to leaders across millennia, The Art of War Illustrated is a classic text richly deserving this illustrated and expanded dual-language edition.

Övrig information

Sun Tzu (also known as Sunzi) was traditionally thought by historians to have been born around 544BCE, and that he later served as a general leading the forces of King He L of Wu, one of the seven Warring States of Eastern China during the Spring and Autumn period, and The Art of War is based on his many victories, although modern scholarship suggests the book may have been written later. James Trapp is the author of Chinese Characters: The Art and Meaning of Hanzi, Chinese Proverbs and also has translated a new edition of Sun Tzus The Art of War. A Chinese language graduate of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, he teaches and translates Mandarin and is a former Education Officer at the British Museum.
