Military and defence strategy

Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.

This richly illustrated deluxe gift edition presents Sun Tzu's The Art of War, the earliest-known and most famous treatise on military science. This ancient Chinese text provides tactical advice on war strategy and how to adjust your approach in ever-evolving situations. Despite being written over two thousand years ago, its shrewd and penetrating theories are used today as a source of insight into many areas of life, including leadership and corporate strategy.

Featuring stunning full-colour illustrations and beautifully patterned endpapers, this luscious hardback edition with dust jacket and gold foil blocking makes a wonderful gift or collectable for anyone interested in the contemporary insights of ancient Chinese wisdom.

Sun Tzu was an accomplished general and strategist in China who lived during the Spring and Autumn period (771 - 485BC). His treatise The Art of War is the most famous military text ever written and remains influential to this day.

Lionel Giles (1875-1958) served as assistant curator at the British Museum, specialising in Chinese literature and history. He is most notable for his translation of ancient Chinese texts, including The Art of War and The Analects of Confucius.
