Contents: Sunzi: The Art of War is the earliest and most valuable treatise on military science extant, dating from the late Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 B.C.).The book is a condensation of the experience of warfare in that historical era, with the emphasis on precautionary and intelligence strategy.

By revealing the nature and important rules of warfare, Sunzi: The Art of War has had a tremendous influence on military, political and philosophical thought in China. Down the ages it has been called a "military classic," and its author a "military genius." This work, now over 2000 years old, has been translated into various languages since the 17th century, and even today has a profound influence all over the world.
