Overview

Sun Tzu’s Art of War has been read and appreciated by a host of military men and philosophers down through the ages. More recently, it has become popular as a manual for business success and guide to boardroom battles, seen by many as a lodestar in achieving success in the ruthless world of competitive capitalism – a text so currently fashionable that even Paris Hilton has been photographed reading it. Yet what makes the present study so valuable is not just the text, but the genuinely unique collection of 104 accompanying images linking China’s first unifying Emperor Qin Shi Huang with Mao Zedong, Genghis Khan with Tamerlane, Hulagu Khan with the Manchu conqueror Nurhaci – and, indeed, Sun Tzu with US General Douglas MacArthur. 12,000 words, 104 historical images
