Bushido : the soul of Japan : an exposition of Japanese thought by Inazō Nitobe( Book )

353 editions published between 1899 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 3,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic book is both an important historical document and a guide to everyday practice. Bushido, the way of the warrior, was the samurai code of honour that flourished in feudal Japan. During the modernising Meiji era, Bushido was reinvented and became an important cultural force in the rise of Japanese nationalism and the creation of modern Japan. Initially, the new Bushido had no written text that could help in making it understood to foreigners, and it was to meet this need that Inazo Nitobe, (1862-1933), Japanese diplomat, educator and Quaker, wrote this book which remains the best introduction to the study of Bushido and Japanese thought generally. One of the first Japanese to study in the United States, Nitobe devoted his life to promoting understanding between Japan and the West, in which this volume was invaluable. Nitobe presents Bushido not just as a martial discipline, but as a pervasive system of ethics and morals and a living school of thought, life and ideals that can draw strength from the past to advance the present and future. Bushido has no set dogma, but consists of qualities and practices such as courage, benevolence, politeness, veracity, sincerity, honour, loyalty and self-control, all of which he examines

This is an important document in the history of Japanese-American relations.

This book is one of the means by which Nitobe sought to bridge the Pacific. Writing before World War I, he presents a detailed account of Japan and the Japanese in terms easily understandable to western readers, emphasising points of similarity rather than difference, often citing the work of western historians and philosophers in order to explain Japanese practices

Bushido : the samurai code of Japan by Inazō Nitobe( Book )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Japanese and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bushido: the samurai code of Japan is one of the most influential books ever written on "the way of the warrior." A classic study of Japanese culture, the book outlines the moral code of the samurai way of living and the virtues every warrior holds dear. In Bushido, Nitobe points out similarities between Western and Japanese history and culture. He argues that "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." Nitobe believed that connecting Bushido with greater teachings could make an important contribution to all humanity, that the way of the samurai is not something peculiarly Japanese, but of value to the entire human race
