This book is divided into two parts. In the first, the author argues that military power and its relationship to legitimate civil rule were topics of particular interest to intellectuals and statesmen from the fourth through first centuries. In the second part is the first detailed study and translation of a portion of the Yizhou shu in a western language and the first study of any kind of the military portions of the text in any language.
