This deluxe gift edition The Art of War and other classic Chinese military texts is presented with a striking, foil-embossed cover design, gilded page edges and beautifully designed endpapers.
Written between 500 BCE and 700 CE, these seven texts have inspired generals for millennia, both in China and the wider world. These seven texts display an understanding of strategy and warfare still relevant more than 2,000 years after they were originally written. Together, they present a uniquely eastern tradition of warfare that emphasizes speed, stealth, and cunning. Today they offer invaluable sight into leadership and corporate strategy.
Includes: The Art of War, Wuzi, Wei Liaozi, Taigong's Six Secret Teachings, The Methods of the Sima, Three Strategies of Huang Shigong, and Questions and Replies Between Emperor Taizong of Tang and General Li Jing.
