Editorial Reviews

Review

The Dao of the Military makes a welcome addition to the growing literature on early Chinese strategy. The translation is exacting and felicitous. It should serve well for those interested in the history of Chinese thought and Chinese military thought.

(Victor H. Mair, University of Pennsylvania)

With its highly competent translation and penetrating analysis, this volume will be a valuable antidote to the widespread misapprehension that Sunzi's Art of War and Chinese military thought are essentially coterminous.

(David A. Graff Journal of Military History 1900-01-00)

A valuable contribution to the field of Chinese military history.

(Kai Filipiak Monumenta Serica 1900-01-00)

Review

The Dao of the Military summarizes and reflects on many aspects of the theory and practice of warfare developed in the Warring States period. It incorporates much of the theorizing of several traditions of military thought not well represented in the Seven Military Classics, and it is an important and valuable treatise that enriches our understanding of the history of Chinese military theory, the military tradition, Chinese intellectual history, and early China studies.

(Robin D. S. Yates, McGill University)
