For more than two thousand years, The Art of War has provided leaders with essential tactical and management advice.

     –Notes
     –A bibliography
     –A chronology of Chinese dynasties
     –A map
     –An illuminating introduction on the warrior-philosopher Sun Tzu and the role of The Art of War in history and today
