Learn the ways of the Japanese Bushido Code with this very readable, modern translation of the Bushido Shoshinshu. Code of the Samurai is a four-hundred-year-old explication of the rules and expectations embodied in Bushido, the Japanese Way of the Warrior. Bushido has played a major role in shaping the behavior of modern Japanese government, corporations, society, and individuals, as well as in shaping modern Japanese martial arts within Japan and internationally. The Japanese original of this book, Bushido Shoshinshu, (Bushido for Beginners), has been one of the primary sources on the tenets of Bushido, a way of thought that remains fascinating and relevant to the modern world, East and West. This handbook, written after five hundred years of military rule in Japan, was composed to provide practical and moral instruction for warriors, correcting wayward tendencies and outlining the personal, social, and professional standards of conduct characteristic of Bushido, the Japanese chivalric tradition. With a clear, conversational narrative by Thomas Cleary, one of the foremost translators of the wisdom of Asia, and powerfully evocative line drawings by master illustrator Oscar Ratti, this book is indispensable to the corporate executive, student of the Asian Culture, martial artist, those interested in Eastern philosophy or military strategy, as well as for those simply interested in Japan and its people.

Ein erschütternder Bericht aus der Hölle Nordkorea Das diktatorisch regierte Nordkorea ist fast völlig isoliert, aggressiv und bettelarm. Und es hält rund 150.000 seiner Bürger in Lagern gefangen, die vergleichbar sind mit NS-Konzentrationslagern oder dem Gulag. Da die Lager seit Jahrzehnten existieren, gibt es inzwischen Tausende, die dort aufgewachsen sind. Einer von ihnen ist Shin Dong-hyuk. Blaine Harden erzählt die Geschichte des 1982 im sogenannten Lager 14 geborenen Shin, der bis zu seiner Flucht nie etwas anderes kennengelernt hatte als die grausame und primitive Lagerwelt. Menschlichkeit, Vertrauen, Wärme, Zuneigung und jegliche Errungenschaften der Zivilisation waren ihm unbekannt, Hunger, Misstrauen und brutale Züchtigungen hingegen Alltag. Shins Zeugenbericht gibt einen tiefen Einblick in die unmenschlichen Lebensverhältnisse, die in dieser Lagerhölle herrschen, und schildert das berührende Schicksal eines jungen Mannes, dem wie durch ein Wunder die Flucht in die Freiheit gelang.

Japanese historian Louis Perez brings Mikiso Hane's rich and beloved account of early Japanese history up-to-date in this thoroughly revised Second Edition of Premodern Japan. The text traces the key developments of Japanese history in the premodern period, including the establishment of the imperial dynasty, early influences from China and Korea, the rise of the samurai class and the establishment of feudalism, the culture and society of the long Tokugawa period, the rise of Confucianism and Shinto nationalism, and finally, the end of Tokugawa rule. While the text provides many political developments through the early modern period, it also integrates the social, cultural, and intellectual aspects of Japanese history as well. Perez's updates to the text provide a comprehensive overview of the major social, political, and religious trends in premodern Japan as well as offering the most current scholarship.

A Compassionate Samurai is a bold, ethical, results-producing person who makes a difference for others as well as himself. THE COMPASSIONATE SAMURAI In life there are two types of people. The first are those who are nice, good-hearted, and compassionate but can't make much happen. The other kind can make everything happen - they're the creators, the go-getters, and the aggressive producers in society - however, they're often self-centered, greedy, and unethical. Wouldn't it be great if you could make things happen in a really big way but not lose your integrity? The Compassionate Samurai will show you the way to produce extraordinary results in a dog-eat-dog world and still maintain the highest levels of ethics. You'll learn: the way to always be satisfied and motivated regardless of your circumstances; why all people have freedom but very few have liberty; what competing commitments are and the ways they prevent you from having what you want in life; the secret to operating optimally in an untrustworthy environment; ways to make the shift from scarcity to abundance even if you're knee-deep in debt ... and much, much more! Brian Klemmer, a graduate of the United States Military Academy, is a best-selling author and highly respected speaker and seminar leader. His company, Klemmer & Associates Leadership Seminars, Inc., has worked with hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world, helping them produce measurable and long-lasting changes in their lives.
