A century ago, when Japan was transforming itself from an isolated feudal society into a modern nation, a Japanese educator queried about the ethos of his people composed this seminal work, which with his numerous other writings in English made him the best, known Japanese writer in the West during his lifetime.He found in Bushido, the Way of the Warrior, the sources of the virtues most admired by his people: rectitude, courage, benevolence, politeness, sincerity, honor, loyalty and self-control. His approach to his task was eclectic and far-reaching. On the one hand, he delved into the indigenous traditions, into Buddhism, Shintoism, Confucianism and the moral guidelines handed down over hundreds of years by Japan's samurai and sages. On the other hand, he sought similarities and contrasts by citing not only Western philosophers and statesmen, but also the shapers of European and American thought and civilization going back to the Romans, the Greeks and Biblical times.This book is a classic to which generations of scholars and laymen alike have long referred for insights into the character of the Japanese people. And all of its many readers in the past have been amply rewarded, as will be all those who turn to its pages in the next and future decades.

Very interesting to learn about the morals and philosophy behind the samurai from the man who literally wrote the book on it. Some typesetting issues throughout, but for the price, it hardly merits mentioning. Bottom line, adopting a little Bushido in your life will make you a better and more respectable person, and I think we all know a few people who would benefit.

If you want to understand the Samurai mind, this is the NUMBER ONE RESOURCE. I have owned this book in physical format since the 1970s when it was first published by Rainbow Press (Black Belt Publications) in Los Angeles.

This is a "must have" book for any student of Asian martial arts or feudal Japan studies.
Phobism
A good intro to Bushido, and the soul of the Japanese Samurai. This has nothing to do with the moden Japanese society, except for those few who still ascribe to the code.of Bushido. Iny 10 years of living in Japan, I met only one such person. The book requires the reader to have some knowledge of Japan already for complete understanding. Worth the effort to read.
Hatе&love
If you want to understand the Japanese people, this book can help you.

There is no doubt that times are changing in Japan but it is also clear that Bushido and the Samurai have had and continue to have a deep influence upon their culture.

What I was looking for.
This book is an excellent summary of bushido, it is very easy to understand with simplifying the book so the meaning is diluted. This is definitely a must have for anyone, even just the general reader.
