Old Japan's elite warrior cult, the samurai have for too long been misrepresented in movies and books. In this lavishly illustrated history, Stephen Turnbull goes beyond the battlefield to offer a picture of the samurai as they really were. The world of the samurai warrior is revealed to be one of great richness, with such topics as the cult of suicide, ritualized revenge, and the lore of the sword being seen in the context of an all-encompassing warrior culture that was expressed through art and poetry as much as through violence.
