Editorial Reviews

Review

"Each sentence is a struck match…[Nylan's] translation is insightful and alert." -- Dwight Garner ― New York Times

"I consumed Professor Nylan’s edition of The Art of War in one sitting! Sun Tzu has been so often translated that we run the risk of forgetting just how gripping and remarkable his little book is. The most impressive thing about the Nylan translation is its total lack of complacency―it’s the sharpest and most uncompromising English-language rendition of this book I've ever read." -- Steve Donoghue, managing editor, Open Letters Monthly

"Michael Nylan’s translation is marvelous. The pithiness of certain parts of the text, its aphoristic quality, presents an exceptionally difficult challenge. Because Nylan has a deep understanding of the social and cultural milieu that produced Sun Tzu’s treatise, she has created an English-language version that is accessible while retaining the literary beauty of the original. Her introduction and supporting materials are very helpful to the reader, and I would expect that this version will become the standard one in the field." -- Dennis Washburn, translator of The Tale of Genji

"Michael Nylan’s masterful translation of The Art of War brings historical depth to our understanding of the classic and also illuminates its broad significance for our world today." -- Waiy-yee Li, professor of Chinese literature, Harvard University --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
