About this product
- DescriptionJustice, courage, loyalty, self control: the qualities essential to the Samurai warriors of Japan are those that we all aspire to. In this classic work, originally published as Bushido: The Soul of Japan, Inazo Nitobe explores the moral code of the Japanese warrior class, from the importance of politeness rituals to the ultimate chilling self sacrifice: hara-kiri or suicide. Nitobe's engaging text conjures up a world of chivalric principles and brutal warfare - a fading world, but one that has resonance in modern Japanese society and around the world.This beautifully illustrated edition contains an introduction by John Baldock, and authentic Japanese images throughout.
- Author BiographyInazo Nitobe was a scholar, educator, diplomat and statesman. After studying at Johns Hopkins University he maintained his links with the US and tried throughout his academic career 'to become a bridge across the Pacific'. He attended the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 and then joined the newly established League of Nations. Nitobe wrote many works, of which Bushido: The Soul of Japan is perhaps the best known and established his reputation in the West. Nitobe's portrait featured on the Y5,000 note from 1984 to 2004.
