This collectible edition of "The Art of War by Sun Tzu" presents these timeless instructions regarding military strategy and managing conflict in two complete versions, with over 260 pages of content.

A modern introduction, tracing the origins of "The Art of War" and its historical and cultural importance, firmly grounds the reader in the context with which the oldest book on military strategy has survived the ages, as well as contemporary examples of its continued use.

The first section of this collectible edition contains "The Art of War" in English, without notes or commentary. This allows the reader to understand the teachings of Sun Tzu, without the distraction of footnotes or excessive comments.

The second section contains the complete annotated translation by Lionel Giles, restored by Sian Kim, along with Giles' translation notes, definitive critical commentary, and supplemental information from a broad range of sources. Written during the Victorian era, Giles' 1910 "Introduction" has also been included, containing the legend of "Sun Tzu and The Army of Concubines".

Although written in the 6th century BC, the teachings of Sun Tzu are still found today in the martial arts, legal doctrine, military schools, management seminars and pervasively throughout popular culture.

Review:

"The Denma Group show us how to apply Sun Tzu's wisdom in everyday situations."--James A. Autry, co-author of "Real Wisdom: Business Lessons from the Tao Te Ching"
"The commentary and essays included will help the reader appreciate that this work has endured, not simply as a manual for the conduct of warfare but because of the depth of the principles on which it is based and their applicability to everyday life.""--Library Journal
"
"An exhilarating experience. The principles of translation are among the best I have ever encountered. They have a collective genius."--Victor H. Mair, professor, Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Pennsylvania

"Thomas Cleary's translation of Sun Tzu's 2,000-year-old "Art of War "makes immediately relevant one of the greatest Chinese classical texts. There's not a dated maxim or vague prescription in it. ‘To win without fighting is best,’ Sun Tzu said. For him, war was coeval with life. Absorb this book, and you can throw out all those contemporary books about management leadership.”—"Newsweek"
"This volume of ancient Chinese wisdom is consistently rated higher than most modern leadership books.”—"Inc."
