Master Sun's Art of War

Philip J. Ivanhoe - Hackett Publishing Company Incorporated, 2011

Book description

"P J Ivanhoe is one of the English-speaking world s foremost translators and interpreters of classical Chinese philosophical texts. His translation of the Sunzi Bingfa reads beautifully, adorned only by sobering photographic plates of the famed terracotta army of the first Qin emperor that turn one back to the text in a properly reflective mood. The Introduction and endnotes are blessedly spare, providing just the right amount of interpretative scholarship to assist comprehension of the text, while not interfering with its intrinsic simplicity, clarity, and profundity." -- Sumner B Twiss, Distinguished Professor of Human Rights, Ethics & Religion, Florida State University
