Jointly hosted by the Sunzi Research Association of Shandong and the Military Psychology Committee under the Chinese Psychology Society, the symposium on Ancient Chinese Psychological Warfare was held on August 18, 2012 at the Psychology Institute under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

A total of 45 experts and scholars in the fields of military science, psychology and history throughout the country discussed the historical value and contemporary significance of the book entitled Conquest without Combat – Ancient Chinese Psychological Warfare Thought and Usage as well as the ancient Chinese psychological warfare.

The monograph entitled Conquest without Combat – Ancient Chinese Psychological Warfare Thought and Usage is written by former vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the Shandong Provincial People's Congress. The book, with 500,000-odd words, comprehensively and systematically expounds the origin and development of ancient Chinese psychological warfare from the pre-Qin period to the Ming and Qing dynasties. It has blazed a trail in building a psychological warfare academic system with Chinese humanist tradition and filled the gap in ancient war theories of China and even the world.

The book has become a textbook for psychological warfare majors of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA).
