    Title: Art of War
    Author: SUN-TZU

    The "Art of War "is almost certainly the most famous study of strategy ever written and has had an extraordinary influence on the history of warfare.aThe principles Sun-tzu expounded were utilized brilliantly by such great Asian war leaders as Mao Tse-tung, Giap, and Yamamoto.aFirst translated two hundred years ago by a French missionary, Sun-tzuOCOs "Art of War" has been credited with influencing Napoleon, the German General Staff, and even the planning for Desert Storm.aMany Japanese companies make this book required reading for their key executives.aAnd increasingly, Western businesspeople and others are turning to the "Art of War" for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive situations of all kinds.aUnlike most editions of Sun-tzu currently available (many simply retreads of older, flawed translations), this superb new translation makes use of the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, including the ancient OC tomb textOCO version discovered by archaeologists at Linyi, China.aRalph Sawyer, an outstanding Western scholar of ancient Chinese warfare and a successful businessman in his own right, places this classic work of strategy in its proper historical context.aSawyer supplies a portrait of Sun-tzuOCOs era and outlines several battles of the period that may have either influenced Sun-tzu or been conducted by him.aWhile appreciative of the philosophical richness of the "Art of War," this edition stresses Sun-tzuOCOs practical origins and presents a translation that is both accurate and accessible."
