First time in paperback--a new translation of the ancient Chinese military classic that is widely admired by military and business strategists.

For more than two thousand years, The Art of War has provided leaders with essential tactical and management advice. An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone in the West for achieving success, whether on the battlefield or in business. This Vintage Classics edition features a brilliant translation by Peter Harris, first published by Everyman's Library in 2018. Alongside the pithy and powerful ancient text, Harris includes:
--A bibliography
--A chronology of Chinese dynasties
--A map
--Extracts from the canon of classical Chinese commentators
--An illuminating introduction on the warrior-philosopher Sun Tzu and the role of The Art of War in history and today
