About Code of the Samurai A Modern Translation of the Bushido Shoshinshu of Taira Shigesuke

Code of the Samurai: A Modern Translation of the Bushido Shoshinshu of Taira Shigesuke was written by Taira Shigesuke and translated by Thomas Cleary with 30 color photos and black and white illustrations by Oscar Ratti.

Immerse yourself in the world of the Samurai with this classic text.

Code of the Samurai is the 350-year-old summary of the rules and expectations embodied in Bushido—the ancient Japanese "Way of the Warrior." Written by Taira Shigesuke, a Samurai and prominent teacher of military techniques, it was published posthumously in 1834. This influential book was intended as a training manual for young Samurai, outlining personal and professional standards.

This accessible and enjoyable translation is by Thomas Cleary, the foremost translator of Asian martial classics, accompanied by the powerful line drawings of master illustrator Oscar Ratti. A new foreword by Alexander Bennett, a leading expert on Samurai history, explains the lasting importance of this classic work and its place within the canon of Japanese literature.
