Chinese Strategists: Beyond Sun Zi’s Art of War

The two Chinese classics that this volume consists of – Wu Zi’s Art of War and Conversations with Tang Taizong – were written a thousand years apart. However, the latter carries regular references to the former, and the principles of warfare, leadership, strategy and organisation were themes eagerly discussed throughout Chinese history.Even a cursory reading of these books provides ample reasons why General Wu Zi, who lived in the earlier part of the Warring States period (475–221 BC) never lost a battle in his life. And also why Emperor Taizong managed to found the long-lasting Tang Dynasty (618–906) that southern Chinese still proudly refer to as the basis of their culture.Today, centuries later, these master strategists still overwhelm us with their insights and words of wisdom
