Editorial Reviews

Review

Robert L. O’Connell, author of Arms and Men: A History of Warm Weapons, and Aggression
“A tour de force. Sawyer puts this most famous of the classic Chinese military writings into context and shows that Sun-tzu was not just a solitary genius, but the product of a remarkably rich martial culture.”

Robin D.S. Yates, Burlington Northern Professor of Asian Studies, Dartmouth College
“I am convinced that this translation…will prove to be the definitive edition for many years to come.”
Arther Ferrill, author of The Origins of War: From the Stone Age to Alexander the Great
“Fills a serious gap for anyone interested in the history of ancient warfare…a fascinating book.”

Amazon.com Review

Sun Tzu's Art of War just got better. The Illustrated Art of War enlivens Thomas Cleary's complete translation, including commentaries, with full-color reproductions of paintings and statuary from China and Japan. Talk about martial art--these depictions show full battles scenes, the Chinese god of war, weaponry, processions--even an ancient map. --Brian Bruya --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
