Publisher's Summary

Nitobe Inazo (1862 - 1933) was a Japanese agricultural economist, author, educator, diplomat, and politician. His book Bushido: The Soul of Japan explains Samurai culture to a Western audience. 

First published in English in 1900, Bushido takes a look at the virtues associated with the warrior’s way, such as rectitude, courage, benevolence, politeness, sincerity, honor, loyalty, and self-control. 

Identifying the roots of Bushido in Buddhism, Shintoism, and Confucianism, he examines correspondences in Western philosophy, from modern thinkers down the ages through Greco-Roman culture and all the way back to Biblical times. 

The author found many resemblances between the Samurai ethos and the spirit of medieval chivalry. Bushido became an international best seller, popular with intellectuals and statesmen, and has been translated into more than 20 languages.
