Publisher's Summary

This collectible edition of The Art of War presents Sun Tzu's timeless instructions regarding military strategy and managing conflict in two complete versions. 

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

The first part contains The Art of War in English, without notes or commentary. This allows the listener to understand the teachings of Sun Tzu without the distraction of footnotes or excessive comments. This newly revised translation is succinct and very easy to understand. 

The second part contains the complete annotated translation by Lionel Giles, along with his 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 sixth 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.
