The Way of the Samurai

Author(s): Inazo Nitobe


Justice, 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.
