Thick Black Theory is a philosophical treatise written by Li Zongwu (1879-1944), a disgruntled politician and scholar born at the end of the Qing dynasty. It was published in China during the years of chaos in China, when Sun Yat-sen overthrew the Qing dynasty and set up the Chinese Republic. It may be regarded as the Chinese equivalent of Machiavelli's 'The Prince'. It went through several printings before being banned in China as subversive.

Li was a scientist of political intrigue. He wrote: "When you conceal your will from others, that is Thick. When you impose your will on others, that is Black." Thick Black Theory describes the ruthless, hypocritical means men use to obtain and hold power: "Thick Faces" (shamelessness), and "Black Hearts" (cruelty), according to the author's view of history.
