EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This fascinating Japanese culture and business guide explains how bushido samurai culture has influenced modern Japanese behavior and business practices. Bushido, the ethical system of Japan's famous samurai class, which ruled the country from 1192 until 1868, eventually came to encompass every aspect of the lives of the people—their philosophical and spiritual beliefs, their etiquette, their family life, their dress, their work, their aesthetic sense, even their recreation. In The Japanese Samurai Code, Japanologist Boye Lafayette De Mente attempts to identify the positive factors in Bushido that were primarily responsible for the astounding economic success of the Japanese, and still today play a vital role in their economic prowess. Perfect for those interested in doing business in, or with, Japan, or just trying to improve their own personal skills and performance, this book is a success manual for people in any endeavor.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Learn the ways of the Japanese Bushido Code with this very readable, modern translation of the Bushido Shoshinshu. 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. Bushido has played a major role in shaping the behavior of modern Japanese government, corporations, society, and individuals, as well as in shaping modern Japanese martial arts within Japan and internationally. The Japanese original of this book, Bushido Shoshinshu, (Bushido for Beginners), has been one of the primary sources on the tenets of Bushido, a way of thought that remains fascinating and relevant to the modern world, East and West. This handbook, written after five hundred years of military rule in Japan, was composed to provide practical and moral instruction for warriors, correcting wayward tendencies and outlining the personal, social, and professional standards of conduct characteristic of Bushido, the Japanese chivalric tradition. With a clear, conversational narrative by Thomas Cleary, one of the foremost translators of the wisdom of Asia, and powerfully evocative line drawings by master illustrator Oscar Ratti, this book is indispensable to the corporate executive, student of the Asian Culture, martial artist, those interested in Eastern philosophy or military strategy, as well as for those simply interested in Japan and its people.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Bushido: A Modern Adaptation of the Ancient Code of the Samurai attempts to address the violent nature of the human spirit and to harness and redirect that trait into a constructive force for the betterment of mankind. Bushido examines the metaphor of the Warrior as it appears in human culture both historically and in the stories, philosophies and religions of mankind, drawing heavily upon the stoic martial philosophy of Feudal Japan and on the Judeo-Christian principles which have shaped the West. It is the Author's hope that this work will convey a message of self-reliance, strength and peace that our world so desperately needs.

In The Broken Connection, Robert Jay Lifton, one of America's foremost thinkers and preeminent psychiatrists, explores the inescapable connections between death and life, the psychiatric disorders that arise from these connections, and the advent of the nuclear age which has jeopardized any attempts to ensure the perpetuation of the self beyond death.
