Synopsis

Dated to about the fifth century B.C., The Art of War is considered the world's oldest treatise on war. Attributed to Sun Tzu of the Zhou dynasty, the book is composed of 13 chapters, each addressing a particular aspect of warfare such as planning offenses, military combat, and the employment of spies. Influential in Eastern civilization for millennia and in Western culture since its first translation in the 18th century, the teachings of this book have been applied to scenarios as varied as office politics, the Vietnam War, and American football. Now this living military heirloom is available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series in a chic, affordable edition for readers everywhere.Lexile score: 1150L

Sun Tzu (544 B.C.E. Â 496 B.C.) was a Chinese military general, strategist, and philosopher from the Zhou Dynasty. He had a significant impact on Asian history and culture as an author of The Art of War as well as through legend.
