Bushido is the chivalric code of moral principles that the Samurai followed: rectitude, courage, benevolence, respect, honesty, honour and loyalty. Beautifully produced in traditional Chinese binding, Bushido Illustrated will appeal to anyone interested in leadership, the code of the Samurai and Japanese culture.
Bushido, samuraiens æreskodeks og leveregler, præger endnu i dag det japanske samfund og den japanske mentalitet mere end noget andet. Dette til trods for de ca.140 år, der er gået siden afskaffelsen af feudal-styret gennem Meiji-restaurationen og kejserrigets åbning over for kulturel indflydelse fra udlandet, frem for alt fra Vesten. Langt forud for sin tid forsøgte Inazo Nitobe, universitetsprofessor og repræsentant for den sidste generation af samurai-æraen, at slå bro mellem vestlig og fjernøstlig mentalitet med sin bog, hvis originaludgave var på engelsk og udkom 1905. Med hårfin indsigt i og mange sammenligninger med vestlig kultur og mentalitet giver Inazo Nitobe en interessant, dybtborende og autentisk beskrivelse af Bushido, "krigerens vej", der drejer sig om meget mere end blot samuraiens øvelser med sværdet. Der skulle gå 100 år, før den danske litteraturoversætter, Dinny Crast, genopdagede værket og gjorde det tilgængeligt for dansksprogede Japan-fans og andre interesserede med denne nye edition fra BoD.

1909. Bushido, literally translated Way of the Warrior, originated in Japan between the 9th and 12th centuries. It was a code and way of life for Samurai, a class of warriors similar to the medieval knights of Europe. It was influenced by Zen and Confucianism, two different schools of thought of those periods. Bushido is not unlike the chivalry and codes of the European knights.

Nitobe originally wrote Bushido: The Soul of Japan in English (1899), in Malvern, Pennsylvania. As Japan underwent deep transformations of its traditional lifestyle while becoming a modern nation, Nitobe engaged in an inquiry into the ethos of his nation, and the result of his meditations was this seminal work. A fine stylist in English, he wrote many books in that language, which earned him a place among the best known Japanese writers of his age. He found in Bushido, the Way of the Warrior, the sources of the eight 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. He also delved into the other indigenous traditions of Japan, such as Buddhism, Shintoism, Confucianism and the moral guidelines handed down over hundreds of years by Japan's samurai and sages. In addition, he sought similarities and contrasts by citing not only Western philosophers and statesmen, but also the shapers of European and American thought and civilization
This book looks at the history and culture of the Japanese over the centuries. From the preface: "About ten years ago, while spending a few days under the hospitable roof of the distinguished Belgian jurist, the lamented M. de Laveleye, our conversation turned, during one of our rambles, to the subject of religion. "Do you mean to say," asked the venerable professor, "that you have no religious instruction in your schools?" On my replying in the negative he suddenly halted in astonishment, and in a voice which I shall not easily forget, he repeated "No religion! How do you impart moral education?" The question stunned me at the time. I could give no ready answer, for the moral precepts I learned in my childhood days, were not given in schools; and not until I began to analyze the different elements that formed my notions of right and wrong, did I find that it was Bushido that breathed them into my nostrils. The direct inception of this little book is due to the frequent queries put by my wife as to the reasons why such and such ideas and customs prevail in Japan. In my attempts to give satisfactory replies to M. de Laveleye and to my wife, I found that without understanding Feudalism and Bushido,  the moral ideas of present Japan are a sealed volume."

**Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) Winner**Bushido: The Samurai Code of Japan is the most influential book ever written on the Japanese "e;Way of the Warrior."e; 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. It is widely read today in Japan and around the world. There are seven core precepts of Bushido: Rectitude: "e;The power of deciding upon a certain course of conduct in accordance with reason, without wavering."e;Courage: "e;Doing what is right."e;Benevolence: "e;Love, magnanimity, affection for others, sympathy and pity."e;Civility: "e;Courtesy and urbanity of manners."e;Sincerity: "e;The end and the beginning of all things."e;Honor: "e;A vivid conscious of personal dignity and worth."e; Loyalty: "e;Homage and fealty to a superior."e; Together, these seven values create a system of beliefs unique to Japanese philosophy and culture that is widely followed 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 Samuraiwhat it meant to have Bushido. <br. In Bushido, Nitobe points out similarities between Western and Japanese history and culture. He argues that "e;no matter how different any two cultures may appear to be on the surface, they are still created by human beings, and as such have deep similarities."e; Nitobe believed that connecting Bushido with greater teachings could make an important contribution to all humanitythat the way of the Samurai is not something peculiarly Japanese, but of value to the entire human race. With an extensive new introduction and notes by Alex Bennett, a respected scholar of Japanese history, culture and martial arts with a firsthand knowledge of the Japanese warrior code, Bushido: The Samurai Code of Japan is an essential guide to the essence of Japanese culture. Bennett's views on this subject are revolutionizing our understanding of Bushido, as expressed in his Japanese bestseller The Bushido the Japanese Don't Know About.

CHIVALRY is a flower no less indigenous to the soil of Japan than its emblem, the cherry blossom; nor is it a dried-up specimen of an antique virtue preserved in the herbarium of our history. It is still a living object of power and beauty among us; and if it assumes no tangible shape or form, it not the less scents the moral atmosphere, and makes us aware that we are still under its potent spell. The conditions of society which brought it forth and nourished it have long disappeared; but as those far-off stars which once were and are not, still continue to shed their rays upon us, so the light of chivalry, which was a child of feudalism, still illuminates our moral path, surviving its mother institution. It is a pleasure to me to reflect upon this subject in the language of Burke, who uttered the well-known touching eulogy over the neglected bier of its European prototype.

Bushido significa muchas cosas, pero todas pueden resumirse en una: el alma de Japón. Este antiguo código guerrero japonés supone un tratado con todos los preceptos interiorizados por el pueblo japonés desde tiempos inmemoriales, y supone una radiografía pormenorizada de su identidad, su historia y su razón de ser.INAZO NITOBE (1862-1933) nació en Morioka en el seno de una familia samurái. Estudió en la Universidad de Sapporo, donde se convirtió al cristianismo. En 1884 fue enviado por el Gobierno japonés a los EE.UU. para completar sus formación académica y allí se unió a la Sociedad Religiosa de los Amigos, o cuáqueros, y se casó con Mary Patterson. En 1891, regresó a Japón y enseñó en la universidad hasta 1897, cuando tomó una excedencia para escribir el em Bushido /em . Nitobe tuvo una dilatada carrera como profesor y hombre de estado. Fue representante de Japón en la Liga de las Naciones Unidas (antecesora de la ONU), cofundador del germen de la UNESCO y promotor del esperanto. Tras abandonar los cargos internacionales, fue congresista en Japón, donde defendió posturas antimilitaristas. Murió en Vancouver en 1933 cuando volvía a Japón de una reunión internacional.
Bushido, which literally means "the way of warriors" is a code of conduct, based upon a set of honors and ideals associated with the samurai way of life, that has greatly influenced the culture and people of Japan. The origin of bushido likely dates to sometime between the 16th and 20th century in Japan, though some scholars argue that it may have been built upon much earlier traditions. Born from the Neo-Confucianism of the Edo period, bushido emphasizes the eight virtues of righteousness, heroism, compassion, respect, honesty, honor, loyalty, and self-control. Noted diplomat, statesman, economist, educator, and author, Inazo Nitobe helped to introduce the culture of Japan to a western audience. Today he is best remembered for his work "Bushido: The Soul of Japan". First published in English in 1900, the work explores how the influence of the ancient code of bushido has had such a lasting effect on the culture and traditions of Japan. Drawing in the eastern traditions of Buddhism, Shintoism, and Confucianism, Nitobe compares and contrasts bushido with the foundations of Western culture finding common ground in the spirit of medieval chivalry and the ethos of ancient Greece. While criticized in Japan contemporarily for presenting bushido from too Western of a perspective, the work is today recognized as a classic on the subject. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper and includes an introduction by William Elliot Griffis.
