From a leading expert in Japanese history, this is one of the first full histories of the art and culture of the Samurai warrior. The Samurai emerged as a warrior caste in Medieval Japan and would have a powerful influence on the history and culture of the country from the next 500 years. Clements also looks at the Samurai wars that tore Japan apart in the 17th and 18th centuries and how the caste was finally demolished in the advent of the mechanized world.

“As it says on the tin ⛩”

I had great expectations for this - I listened to it on audiobook.

I found very much joy and intrigued throughout the book, so many facts and detail, will re-listen again soon.
