This Special Edition of "The Art of War" by Mao Tse-tung contains his four most important discourses on warfare. The parallels between Chairman Mao's thoughts on strategy and those of Sun Tzu belie a direct lineage of culture and genius projected across twenty five centuries.

First, "Problems of Strategy in China's Revolutionary War", considers the rational and classical strategems underlying the conduct of a successful war.

Second, "Problems of Strategy in Guerrilla War Against Japan", discusses the conduct of guerrilla actions relative to, and within, conventional warfare.

Third, "On Protracted War", deals with a wide range of topics including mobile warfare, guerrilla warfare, positional warfare, war of attrition and war of annihilation.

Fourth, "Problems of War and Strategy" summarizes the lessons of the previous discourses and reiterates the famous dictum: "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."

Other Special Editions in this series that deal with the subject of warfare and strategy include:

The Art of War by Sun Tzu - Special Edition
The Art of War By Baron De Jomini - Special Edition
The Art of War & The Prince By Machiavelli - Special Edition
