Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ninjutsu has been variously described as the “art of sneaking in,” the “art of stealth” and even the “art of invisibility,” and this book reveals the ninjas way of life that few outside of Japan have experienced. Ninja were the cloak-and-dagger artists of Japans feudal era, from the late 13th century to the early 17th century. Japanese youths were trained within the Iga and Koga ninja networks, which were run like armed camps and turned out only espionage agents. Iga and Koga youths were born ninja and died ninja—there was no other way of life open to them. They were thus able to devote all their time to training, and they were considered full-fledged ninja when they were still in their teens.

Synopsis:

Andrew Adams, a journalist for many years with Japan Times, describes the ninja's purposes, their espionage and fighting techniques, and their rise and fall as a class of people in Japanese society during Japan's feudal era in this illustrated volume.

About the Author

Andrew Adams taught English, journalism, and drama at Sullins College in Virginia and was subsequently a staff member at the Japan Times. He was also a contributor to Black Belt magazine.
