Synopsis:
This original book examines the belief system and the spiritual world of the Samurai, rather than their martial arts skills and military powess. From their attachment to Japan's mainstream religions of Shinto and Buddhism, to their involvement in Confucianism, Christianity, and folk religion, Turnbull looks at such important topics such as Zen and the martial arts, modern militarism, the cult of the sword, revenge and suicide - hari kari and kamikaze pilots. He also looks at the growing cult status of the Samurai both in Japan and the West.
