Published In: United States, 01 May 1991
Compiled more than 2000 years ago by a mysterious warrior-philosopher, this is a book of strategy. Studied by modern politicians and executives and military leaders since ancient times, this is a study of competition and conflict on every level, from the interpersonal to the international. Cleary's translation brings out the insights into human nature that underlie this book. Thomas Cleary holds a doctorate in East Asian Languages and Civilisation from Harvard University and is the translator of many classic texts of Buddhism, Taoism and "I Ching" studies.

About the Author

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.

Reviews

This year's crop of Penguin "Great Ideas" volumes offers another eclectic dozen works that shaped society from the ancient Greeks to the 20th century. The books are fairly no frills, but the price isn't bad. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
