    This web site contains annotations integral to the book The Art of War by Sun Tzu, translated by the Denma Translation Group (Boston: Shambhala Publications, 2001). These on-line resources were created by Kidder Smith, co-leader of the Denma Translation Group and professor of Chinese history at Bowdoin College, in conjunction with Bowdoin's Educational Technology Center. The translations of the text found here are copyrighted by the Denma Translation Group and used by their permission and that of Shambhala Publications. The annotations were done by Professor Smith. Educators and students may use this resource as part of their teaching, research, and/or studies, but may not sell or otherwise make a profit on its use.

    The image used on the chapter screens as well as in the footer is a trident, a military sceptre in both Eastern and Western traditions. This trident is a stylized rendition of the Chinese character for "mountain." It is connected with wisdom and symbolizes the immovable force that attains victory before going into battle. The form of this trident is based on a design by Chogyam Trungpa. It was modified and executed by Liza Matthews and is used by permission of Diana J. Mukpo. All rights reserved.
