This classic text by Inazo Nitobe defining the moral code of the warrior class or Samurai has had a huge impact both in the West and in Japan itself. Drawing on Japanese traditions such as Shinto and Buddhism, and citing parallels with Western philosophy and literature, Nitobe's text is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the traditional Samurai culture and how it had an affect on the moral philosophies of Japan. This deluxe slipcase edition is illustrated throughout. Originally published as Bushido, The Way of the Samurai , has become a book like The Art of War a classic with information that was created as a guide for the life of the literal warrior, but has become lifestyle reading for the martial artist, the yoga practioner, and the businessperson in the 21st century. Nitobe details the sources of the eight virtues most admired by his people and practiced by the Samurai - rectitude, courage, benevolence, politeness, sincerity, honor, loyalty, and self-control - and compares these virtues to ancient Western philosophies and more.
