It can be said that no greater work on the subject of military theory exists than Sun Tzu's "The Art of War." It is certainly the oldest known book on the subject having been written some 2500 years ago. It has been studied for centuries and the wisdom contained within it is applicable not only to the battlefield but also to much of everyday life. Presented here is the fully annotated translation of Lionel Giles.
This year's crop of Penguin "Great Ideas" volumes offers another eclectic dozen works that shaped society from the ancient Greeks to the 20th century. The books are fairly no frills, but the price isn't bad. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
