Bushido. The Samurai Code of Japan.

Rutland. Tuttle. 2019. Stock ID #214455

192pp. Hardback in dustjacket.

"Bushido: The Samurai Code of Japan is one of the most influential books ever written on "the way of the warrior." A classic study of Japanese culture, the book outlines the moral code of the Samurai way of living and the virtues every Samurai warrior holds dear.

There are seven precepts of Bushido: justice, courage, benevolence, politeness, sincerity, honor, and loyalty. Together, these seven values create a system of beliefs that is unique to Japanese philosophy and culture, and is still alive today. Inazo Nitobe, one of Japan's foremost scholars, thoroughly explores each of these values and explains how they differ from their Western counterparts. Until you understand the philosophy behind the ethics, you will never fully grasp what it meant to be a Samurai - what it meant to have Bushido." (Publisher's description).
