Part samurai history, part Japanese martial arts guide, this is THE book for anyone interested in Japanese culture, history, and warfare.

Having earned multiple black belts in kendo as well as a Ph.D. in Japanese literature and history author Alexander Bennett shares his vast experience and insider knowledge with readers seeking to undertake his or her personal spiritual quest.

Bennett outlines the history of Bushido and the Japanese martial arts from early times up until the present. Then, as only someone steeped in this world can, he thoroughly explains the contemporary martial arts scene in Japan and provides the necessary knowledge young foreigners will need to find a dojo and learn a martial art successfully.
