Overview

A collection of essential versions of THE ART OF WAR and illuminating commentaries written by Sun Tzu's successors. This unique volume includes-- THE ART OF WAR- Perhaps the most influential book of strategy in the world today, this classical Chinese text is a penetrating study of organizations in conflict. Compiled over two thousand years ago by Sun Tzu, a mysterious Chinese warrior-philosopher, the text addresses competition and conflict on every level from the interpersonal to the international.- MASTERING THE ART OF WAR- Composed by two prominent statesmen-generals of classical China, this book develops the strategies of Sun Tzu's ART OF WAR into a complete handbook of organization and leadership. Drawing on episodes from the panorama of Chinese history, MASTERING THE ART OF WAR presents practical summaries of essential laws along with tales of conflict and strategy that show in concrete terms the proper use of Sun Tzu's principles.- THE LOST ART OF WAR- Written by Sun Bin, a linear descendant of Sun Tzu, this is another rich and practical Chinese text on political and military strategy. Though fragments of this text have long been known, this is a translation of the recently discovered complete version of Sun Bin's text.-THE SILVER SPARROW ART OF WAR- A translation of Sun Tzu's ART OF WAR based on a recently discovered version of the classic text.

" Thomas Cleary's translation of The Art of War makes immediately relevant one of the greatest Chinese classical texts. There's not a dated maxim or vague prescription in it. . . .You can throw out all those contemporary books about management and leadership." — Newsweek

Author Information

The warrior-philosopher and master strategist Sun Tzu, about whom little is known, compiled The Art of War more than two thousand years ago. Legend has it that he was known for the brilliant campaigns he led around the time of Confucius. His work was memorized and passed down orally, before eventually being copied onto bamboo strips and passed around.
