More Information
One of the best known translators of the wisdom of Asia, Thomas Cleary now adds a new book to his samurai canon with Samurai Wisdom, new translations of five classic works on bushido. His previous works, Code of the Samurai & Soul of the Samurai, focused on the practical aspects & the more spiritual, Zen side of the samurai, respectively. Samurai Wisdom, authored by the scholar Yamaga Soko or his disciples, provides the core ideals & lessons that taught the samurai how to lead a proper life under the martial philosophy of bushido.

Yamaga's writings inspired the transformation of the samurai from a feudal warrior class to a group with great intellectual, political & ethical leadership & influence. The classic works translated in Samurai Wisdom, despite being over 400 years old, are as timeless & applicable today as Sun Tzu's famous work, The Art of War.
