About the author

Sun Tzu (also known as Sunzi) was traditionally thought by historians to have been born around 544 BCE, and that he later served as a general leading the forces of King He L of Wu, one of the seven Warring States of Eastern China during the Spring and Autumn period. The Art of War is based on his many victories, although modern scholarship suggests the book may have been written later.

James Trapp is the author of Chinese Characters: The Art and Meaning of Hanzi and Chinese Proverbs. A Chinese-language graduate of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, he teaches Mandarin and was previously an education officer on the China Collection at the British Museum.
