Overview

This ancient Chinese military text dissects thirteen aspects of warfare from an strategical and intellectual point of view. Deploring the use of excess force causing economic and civilian losses while discussing strategies that are still relevant to modern warfare, the text continues to resonate with readers around the world and has been considered fundamental in military doctrine for over two thousand years.

The Art of War was first translated for the Western world in the late eighteenth century. The work is attributed to the ancient writer Sun Tzu (Sun Wu) and is thought to have been originally recorded at the end of the sixth century, B.C.E. However, due to its age Chinese historians contest whether or not the version of The Art of War we have today is a revised version of the original treatise.
