Description from the Publisher
Around 2,000 years ago, China was in turmoil. A series of wars left the leaders in search of a new way of governing. Confucius and Lao Tzu had developed their solutions but Sun Tzu's philosophy, born of his direct experience of ware, also gained a popular following amongst the ruling class. In The Art of War, Sun Tzu recommended a strategic method to win that rarely required actual war.
