Learn the ways of the Japanese Bushido Code with this very readable, modern translation of the Bushido Shoshinshu. Code of the Samurai is a four-hundred-year-old explication of the rules and expectations embodied in Bushido, the Japanese Way of the Warrior. Bushido has played a major role in shaping the behavior of modern Japanese government, corporations, society, and individuals, as well as in shaping modern Japanese martial arts within Japan and internationally. The Japanese original of this book, Bushido Shoshinshu, (Bushido for Beginners), has been one of the primary sources on the tenets of Bushido, a way of thought that remains fascinating and relevant to the modern world, East and West. This handbook, written after five hundred years of military rule in Japan, was composed to provide practical and moral instruction for warriors, correcting wayward tendencies and outlining the personal, social, and professional standards of conduct characteristic of Bushido, the Japanese chivalric tradition. With a clear, conversational narrative by Thomas Cleary, one of the foremost translators of the wisdom of Asia, and powerfully evocative line drawings by master illustrator Oscar Ratti, this book is indispensable to the corporate executive, student of the Asian Culture, martial artist, those interested in Eastern philosophy or military strategy, as well as for those simply interested in Japan and its people.

Inventing the Way of the Samurai examines the development of the 'way of the samurai' - bushid=o - in modern Japan. Bushid=o is often viewed as a defining element of the Japanese national character and even the 'soul of Japan'. This volume demonstrates that bushid=o was not a continuation of ancient traditions, but rather developed from a search for identity during Japan's modernization in the late nineteenth century. This bookconsiders the events and writings that drove the dramatic growth of bushid=o, which tended to emphasize martial virtues and absolute loyalty to the emperor, and became a key ideology before and during the Second World War. Unlike otherwartime ideologies, bushid=o was revived soon after 1945, and is a popular and influential concept in Japan and other countries today. This book further examines the characteristics of bushid=o that have allowed it to recover and again be popularly perceived as a pivotal element of Japanese culture.

Shiroyama, ein kleiner charmanter Ort in den japanischen Bergen: Seine reiche Geschichte verheißt eine faszinierende Neujahrszeremonie, und das einladende Badehaus der kleinen Familienpension verspricht wohltuende Stunden. Die junge Englischlehrerin Rei Shimura fühlt sich wie im Paradies, als sie für ein paar Urlaubstage aus Tokio anreist. Und daß ihr gleich am ersten Abend der reizende Hugh Glendinning über den Weg läuft, betrachtet sie als gutes Omen. Am nächsten Morgen jedoch findet man die Frau des einflußreichen Geschäftsmannes Nakamura tot unter dem Fenster des Badehauses. Glendinning scheint mehr zu wissen, als er preisgibt, und zu viele Details des Falles wollen nicht so recht zusammenpassen. Reis detektivischer Spürsinn ist geweckt, doch sie ahnt nicht, daß der Täter ganz in ihrer Nähe ist ...
