Sun Tzu


Beskrivning:

This deluxe boxset contains three classic texts from China and Japan, The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings and The Way of the Samurai, presented in beautiful silkbound volumes inside a decorative slipcase.

The Art of War, written by ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu in the 6th century bc, is the most widely published work on warfare and military strategy and was consulted by Napoleon and Mao Zedong among others. Covering all

aspects of warfare, Sun Tzu promoted strategic flexibility, quick thinking on the battlefield, the use of intelligence,

and understanding the enemy's intentions.



The Book of Five Rings
dates from the mid-17th century and was conceived by a Japanese swordsman, Miyamoto

Musashi. Though it covers swordsmanship and the martial arts, the text's discussion of how to deal with conflict has

been used more widely than its author originally intended. He explains that the principles described can be applied

to a two-person duel as well as a full-scale battle, and emphasizes the need to perfect the techniques to

improve control and discipline.

In The Way of the Samurai, originally published as Bushido, the Soul of Japan, Inazo Nitobe explores the moral

code of the Japanese warrior class, from the importance of politeness rituals to the ultimate self-sacrifice in war:

hara-kiri or suicide. He describes the importance of chivalric principles amid brutal warfare, ideals that still

resonate in modern Japanese society and the wider world.

Featuring elegant cover designs with gold foil-stamping, these luxurious editions make a wonderful gift or collectible.
