The comprehensive and accurate edition of the Hagakure is a must have for serious martial artists or fans of samurai and the bushido code The Hagakure is one of the most influential of all Japanese textswritten nearly 300 years ago by Yamamoto Tsunetomo to summarize the very essence of the Japanese Samurai bushido warrior spirit Its influence has been felt throughout the world and yet its existence is scarcely known to many Westerners This is the first translation to include the complete first two books of the Hagakure and the most reliable and authentic passages contained within the third book all other English translations published previously have been extremely fragmentary and incomplete Alex Bennett s completely new and highly readable translation of this essential work includes extensive footnotes that serve to fill in many cultural and historical gaps in the previous translations This unique combination of readability and scholarship gives Hagakure The Secret Wisdom of the Samurai a distinct advantage over all previous English editions
