This fascinating Japanese culture and business guide explains how bushido samurai culture has influenced modern Japanese behavior and business practices.
Bushido, the ethical system of Japan's famous samurai class, which ruled the country from 1192 until 1868, eventually came to encompass every aspect of the lives of the people—their philosophical and spiritual beliefs, their etiquette, their family life, their dress, their work, their aesthetic sense, even their recreation.
In The Japanese Samurai Code, Japanologist Boye Lafayette De Mente attempts to identify the positive factors in Bushido that were primarily responsible for the astounding economic success of the Japanese, and still today play a vital role in their economic prowess. Perfect for those interested in doing business in, or with, Japan, or just trying to improve their own personal skills and performance, this book is a success manual for people in any endeavor.
