What an interesting little book As many of my Goodreads friends know I have a keen interest in Japan although I ve never really read into its history or the philosophical foundations on which it developed at least to be what it was prior to significant Western influenceThe author makes a great point that now over 100 years since he wrote this that Bushido as a way of life passed through generations is long gone what with Japan as we all see it today being what it is but the soul of it still thrives in the people and culture Of course no where near as prominently as it once did but it is still thereI do not mean in only the martial arts and other cultural activities but in the fostering and development of Japanese people today Although as we are seeing on a global scale this is lessening as we are all with some exceptions but as a general rule converging towards similarity across the globe This is evident especially when you compare generations in the Japanese many of the elderly still have that fire and passion in them where now the youth are focused on trivial matters and pursuits with little to no interest in their own nation s heritage Of course Japan is rich in abundance with many uniue festivities and whatnot but a lot of people do these solely because it s always been done and even though many have religious connotations Japan is now one of the least religious nations in the worldOf course Bushido doesn t depend on religion but the fact it did spawn from it cannot be ignoredI d still say this book is of value even reading now and a lot of the psyche and practice comparisons throughout the book between the West and Japanese are relevant to this day There is a significant amount of referencing to scholarly works and philosophical texts both Eastern and Western throughout the book so readers from Shakespeare to Confucius may be interested in this man s explanations of such an important part of Japan s life

It s not often I read non fiction and this was undeniably dry but I m glad I stuck with it Being half Japanese and having studied Japanese language and literature having lived in Japan and with Japanese people I ve accumulated a slew of images and memories of uirks anomalies mannerisms and truisms that are all uniuely Japanese A Japanese movie or TV show generally brings one or two of those to mind but reading this Bushido book really gets to the heart of the Japanese matter I m surprised how relatable it remains today 40 years after it was first published Not only is it interesting to study the roots of Japanese ethics feudalism and notions of valor but this book really made me think about some American things outside my normal sphere of reference for example life for US military families how moral relationships like the governing and the governed differ in various countries or political parties and also differing cultural views of self control respect for enemies disdain for the intellectual etc Based on names I came across in this book I have a list of biographies I want to look for now Sakuma Saigo Okubo Kido Ito Okuma Itagaki
