9780061351419: The Art of War: The New Translation

Sun-tzu's The Art of War is the classic work on strategic thinking. Throughout recorded history, Sun-tzu's wisdom, rules, and philosophy have been eagerly embraced by warriors, leaders, and gentle contemplators alike.

This edition is an entirely new text based on manuscripts discovered in Linyi, China, in 1972 that predate all previous texts by as many as one thousand years. To better convey Sun-tzu's original intent, translator, researcher, and interpreter J. H. Huang traced the roots of the language to Sun-tzu's own time—before 221 b.c. In addition to his wonderfully clear interpretation, Huang gives readers an introduction to the history behind The Art of War, includes six appendices—five of which were uncovered at Linyi and are not available in any other edition—and offers his own insightful comments on the meaning of the text.

About the Author:

Sun Tzu, also known as Sun Wu or Sunzi, was an ancient Chinese military strategist who was the author of the acclaimed military text, The Art of War. Sun Tzu lived from c. 544-496 BCE. Through The Art of War, Sun Tzu's theories and strategies have influenced military leaders and campaigns throughout time, including the samurai of ancient and early-modern Japan, and more recently Ho Chi Minh of the Viet Cong and American generals Norman Swarzkopf, Jr. and Colin Powell during the Persian Gulf War in the 1990s.

Review:

“There is no doubt that J. H. Huang’s new translation of Sun Tzu will be valuable to anyone who is a student of The Art of War. It will be used by scholars for years to come.” (General Norman Schwarzkopf)
