The 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. This book was written one hundred years earlier than the Hagakure and thus it was written closer to the time when the Samurai were in fact warriors and not so only in theory. The 'sCode of the Samurai's gives suggestions for every facet of behaviour... Everything about this book is remarkably humane, and very well thought out. It promotes responsability to all one'ss aquaintances, colleagues, and leaders. It is about how to live well, not about how to die. For those martial artists who are interested in learning about the cultural roots of their Japanese 'sways's (Do), and about how they can model their lives in part on the lives of the samurai, or for those whose interest is simply in Japanese culture, this book is critical reading. The ideals held within the covers of this book are those that have been striven after in the Japanese martial arts right up to the present day, and, for those interested in the lives of the Samurai, this covers every significant factor.
