About An Illustrated Guide to Samurai History and Culture (Hardcover)

An Illustrated Guide to Samurai History and Culture : From the Age of Musashi to Contemporary Pop Culture was written by Gavin Blair and includes over 250 color prints, paintings, photographs, and illustrations.

The Samurai are continuously celebrated as the greatest warriors the world has ever seen. They ruled Japan for centuries, finally uniting the nation after a prolonged period of brutal war and bloodshed. Though famed for their loyalty, honor, and chivalry, they could also be treacherous, bloodthirsty, and merciless.

This book tells the story of their rise and eventual demise through carefully curated images, both historical and contemporary, with an engaging and authoritative text by Gavin Blair—a noted commentator on all things Japanese. It exposes the myths surrounding the Samurai and reveals their many secrets, while examining their enduring influence on global culture in anime, manga, books, and video games.
