While there is no clear evidence that Cao Cao (曹操 AD 155–220)—the first commentator on The Art of War and a renowned strategist—reedited The Art of War on the basis of the Four Schools, it also seems likely that the Four Schools will have exerted at least some influence over the subsequent editing of The Art of War into its current edition.

It provides a detailed historical analysis that helps trace the roots of Sun Tzu’s thought while presenting this history in relation to the concepts of Sun Tzu in a way that a Western audience will be able to understand.
