One of the best known translators of the wisdom of Asia, Thomas Cleary now adds a new book to his samurai canon withSamurai Wisdom, new translations of five classic works onbushido. His previous works,Code of the SamuraiandSoul of the Samurai, focused on the practical aspects and the more spiritual, Zen side of the samurai, respectively.Samurai Wisdom, authored by the scholar Yamaga Soko or his disciples, provides the core ideals and lessons that taught the samurai how to lead a proper life under the martial philosophy ofbushido. YamagaAEs writings inspired the transformation of the samurai from a feudal warrior class to a group with great intellectual, political and ethical leadership and influence. The classic works translated inSamurai Wisdom, despite being over 400 years old, are as timeless and applicable today as Sun TzuAEs famous work,The Art of War.
