Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

1909. Bushido, literally translated Way of the Warrior, originated in Japan between the 9th and 12th centuries. It was a code and way of life for Samurai, a class of warriors similar to the medieval knights of Europe. It was influenced by Zen and Confucianism, two different schools of thought of those periods. Bushido is not unlike the chivalry and codes of the European knights.
