Sun Tzu's The Art of War has been a vastly influential treatise on military strategy in the east from the time of China's Warring States Period (403-221 BC) onward. Though its first translation into a European language was only in 1782, the book's significance was quickly recognized and even such towering figures of Western history as Napoleon and General Douglas Macithur have claimed it a source of inspiration. Pax Librorum (www.PaxLibrorum.com) now brings readers this highly accessible unannotated edition of Lionel Giles' definitive translation of Sun Tzu's enduring masterpiece.

Comments about The Art of War:
This book was written so long ago, was relevant then, and is still relevant today. A truly amazing book. I have waited so very long to read this book, I have to say, the wait was worth every minute of that wait. Written to the point, concise, no wasted words or phrases.
