Publisher's Summary

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 texts - written 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.
