Linked to the Dr Galambos' research project on Tangut translations of Classical Chinese texts, this publication is a monograph-length study of the Tangut translation of a military work called The General's Garden. The text has been traditionally attributed to the legendary strategist Zhuge Liang from the 3rd century, however, it was almost certainly created during the Song period. In fact, the earliest extant version of this text is a Tangut manuscript recovered from Khara-khoto in 1914 by Aurel Stein and today kept at the British Library. The monograph traces the history of the book in the Chinese tradition and provides a thorough analysis of the Tangut manuscript.
