Dated to about the fifth century BC, The Art of War is considered the world's oldest treatise on war tactics. Attributed to Sun Tzu of China's Zhou dynasty, the book addresses important aspects of warfare, such as planning offenses, military combat, and the use of spies. This book's teachings have been applied to scenarios as varied as office politics, the Vietnam War, and American football.
A Novel Journal: The Art of War infuses new life into a military heirloom by inviting writers to pen their own ideas between the lines of a time-honoured book. The entirety of The Art of War and a later version with commentary by British Museum expert Lionel Giles form the lines of this journal in tiny type.
Packaged with a Svepa cover, brilliant endpapers, colored edges, and matching elastic band, this book is a great gift or collectible for Chinese history buffs or military enthusiasts. And the compact size makes this journal easy to slip into a purse, briefcase, or backpack so you can record and revisit your thoughts on the go.
