"Alex Bennett has produced the first truly authoritative translation and analysis of Hagakure—perhaps the most famous text ever written about samurai honor—to appear in any Western language. Simultaneously erudite and accessible, this volume belongs on the bookshelves of anyone—scholar or hobbyist alike—interested in samurai culture, or modern perceptions thereof." —Dr. Karl F. Friday, author of Samurai, Warfare and the State in Early Medieval Japan and Japan Emerging: Premodern History to 1850

"Dr. Bennett possesses a profound knowledge of, and deep insight into, the world of Japanese bushido. This expertise has been enhanced by his extensive practical experience of the traditional martial arts of Japan, and his proficiency in this domain is highly acclaimed." —Tetsuo Yamaori, former Director of the International Research Center for Japanese Studies

"[Alex Bennett] is the very best writer on martial arts alive today and [his] work needs to be showcased to the general public." —Don Warrener, President, Budo International

"…the most impressive part of the book for us was Bennett's introductory chapter…It puts the Hagakure into its proper historical and social setting as well as examining 'bushido' […] with a critical eye and a look at how Jocho's life experiences and psychology is reflected in the work—and does so elegantly and brilliantly. This translation is well worth picking up just on the strength of this chapter." — blog

"[A] strong point is a scholarly and succinct introduction that grounds the work in historical and social context, equipping the reader with a cultural map of Yamamoto's world. Footnotes provide valuable background and add resonance throughout, keeping names and familial relations straight, highlighting pertinent cross-references and generally rendering the work accessible to contemporary readers." —The Japan Times


Learn the secrets of Japan's samurai warrior code with this definitive translation of the Hagakure—the bushido manual of the samurai.

The Hagakure is one of the most influential of all Japanese texts—written nearly 300 years ago by Tsunetomo Yamamoto to summarize the very essence of the Japanese Samurai bushido ("warrior") spirit. Its influence has been felt throughout the world and yet its existence is scarcely known to many Westerners. This is the first translation to include the complete first two books of the Hagakure and the most reliable and authentic passages contained within the third book. All other English translations published previously have been extremely fragmentary and incomplete.

Alex Bennett's completely new and highly readable translation of this essential work includes extensive footnotes that serve to fill in many cultural and historical gaps in the previous translations. This unique combination of readability and scholarship gives Bennett's translation a distinct advantage over all previous English editions.

At a certain level of practicing japanese martial arts, in particular Kendo, it is essential to consider the historical, spiritual and theoretical background. Otherwise one will not be able to get most of the concepts high ranking teachers are talking about. And it is facinating also. As I know Bennet to have a great practical background knowledge of Kendo and a few other japanese martial arts, this translation certainly will be more usefull to practitioners than mere literature texts. Thank you, Alex.

Studying about warrior culture during the Tokugawa (Edo) period, Hagakure is a book that defined behavior, etiquette and general rules to the way of life for the Samurai/Bushi (士道 ー shidô). This translation, done by a scholar of all things samurai, is not only an apt translation of the japanese words, but also the meaning behind them for nowadays scholars and interestees. It is an eye opening book for anyone interested in Samurai customs and philosophy!!

HASH(0x90e56420) von 5 Sternen Best version of Hagakure 27. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Hagakure is required reading for anyone seeking to understand the samurai mind, which still influences Japanese culture deeply, even today. Although the book "Bushido" is more famous, it was written long after the samurai had ceased to exist, and distorts the facts to suit a Christian / Western viewpoint. Hagakure, however, is the real deal; it was dictated by a samurai serving a lord during the mid-Edo period, and provides invaluable insight into the values of the Japanese warrior class.

This is the most complete translation of Hagakure yet produced in English; other translations are selected excerpts from the original. Dr Bennett's knowledge of Japanese language and history, and particularly the history of the samurai, helps the reader make sense of the subject matter. If you are going to get one version of the Hagakure, this is the one to get!

HASH(0x90e56474) von 5 Sternen Wise, resonating, words on every page. Truly remarkable translation. 17. November 2014
Von JMC Osaka - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I come back to this book daily, again and again for inspiration. Gems like this are easy to find the way the book is laid out numerically.

"Nothing is impossible. With single-minded resolve (ichinen), heaven and earth can be moved as one pleases. The feeble hearts of men hinder their determination. A man's fecklessness prevents him making up his mind. 'Moving heaven and earth without using any strength' can be achieved with-single minded determination."

HASH(0x90e568ac) von 5 Sternen Best translation of Hagakure I've read so far 13. August 2014
Von Love Alm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Dr. Alex Bennett's translation of Hagakure is the first version I've come across which manages to both capture the historical context of Yamamoto Tsunetomo's writings and view it through modern perspective. The world described by Tsunetomo can often seem very alien and the underlying meaning of many passages is not obvious to the modern reader. Dr. Bennetts extensive knowledge of Japanese culture and Budo history provides the necessary historical and cultural context required to understand the mindset of a 18th century samurai. This version have made several passages which previously were incomprehensible to me as clear as day and made me re-evaluate my opinions of Hagakure. A must read for anyone who has an interest in the samurai culture and the Tokugawa-era.

I preordered the book as soon as I become aware of it. I have read & studied other texts produced by Dr. Bennett and they have always been easy to read and understand. I also subscribed to Kendo World even though I do no practice Kendo because the articles provide insight to life in general.

Look forward to reading his latest endeavor.

Yay, the book arrived. And it is not only a wonderful translation for all budoka as noted by all the other reviews, but the Hakagure in Context provides a very rich background for the book.

The translations of the writings of Yamamoto Tsunetomo within provide insight of the samurai and Japanese culture. I believe this is a tremendous read for martial artists and non-martial artists interested in the culture of Japan.

HASH(0x90e56c60) von 5 Sternen I have been studying Japanese as well as Martial arts for years so I can find great value in Yamamoto's word's translated with p 17. November 2014
Von JumpJohn17 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is POWERFUL. So much wisdom packed in such a small package. I can tell the author whom has translated this book has a real grasp on Bushido and the Way of the Warrior due to the fact that the words seem to be as finely crafted as the sharp and timeless Katana. I owe a majority of my life as it is now to this book. After reading it really helped me decide how I should handle all aspects of my life specifically with decision making. I only wish I bought this book sooner. I have been studying Japanese as well as Martial arts for years so I can find great value in Yamamoto's word's translated with passion by Bennett. Every one of my Japanese friends say this is the best book they've read in English thus far.
