This book has been produced using traditional Chinese bookbinding techniques, using a method that was developed during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and remained in use until the adoption of Western binding techniques in the early 1900s. In traditional Chinese binding, single sheets of paper are printed on one side only, and each sheet is folded in half, with the printed pages on the outside. The book block is then sandwiched between two boards and sewn together through punched holes close to the cut edges of the folded sheets.

It is an unusual book that was written 2500 years ago in an impenetrable classic language and yet figures on the recommended reading lists of the United States Marine Corps. More unusual still for it to be a favorite book of figures so contrasting as General Douglas MacArthur and Mao Zedong; but Sunzi's Art of War is such a book. Moreover it has discovered a new life outside military circles in the world of modern business management. A simple internet search under 'Art of War + business strategy' will provide hundreds of sites claiming to offer invaluable commercial insights based on this ancient text.

19 cm x 27 cm 96 page hardcover.
