The Chinese Martial Code

The Art of War of Sun Tzu, The Precepts of War by Sima Rangju, Wu Zi on the Art of War

The Chinese Martial Code

Foreword by: Edwin Lowe and Edwin H. Lowe
For millennia the classics of Chinese martial strategy have been studied and their lessons applied with devastating success by warlords and military generals and today this timeless advice is analyzed as much for its application in the boardroom as on the battlefield—as thousands of Asian businessmen can attest.

Chinese Martial Code provides clear, easy to follow translations of three of the most respected works on strategy in history, featuring a masterful translation of The Art of War of Sun Tzu—the most respected of all works of military strategy—as well as the less famous but equally wise Precepts of Ssu Ma Jang Chu and Wu Chi On the Art of War.

Additionally, A. L. Sadler's translation is converted here into Pinyin for the first time and the original Chinese language versions of these classic texts are also included, making this title a treasure to Chinese history and military scholars as well. The text is also copiously annotated, placing its sage advice in perspective for modern readers planning to use these time-tested strategies to conquer the business world.
