He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious.--Sun Tzu The revered secrets of the Samurai code kishido are strictly for the strong of heart. The Way of the Warrior is a series of lessons that Jotaro's martial-arts master passed on to him, as well as teaching virtues embedded in all traditional martial ways. Demanding unquestionable ethics and unconditional chivalry, kishido embraces both Eastern and Western customs and practices, and is essential knowledge for strong-willed warriors on the battlefield--and in the boardroom. Renowned practitioner Jotaro takes you step by step through the Samurai code, illuminating topics such as: Fudoshin: courage without recklessness, Koji: the secrets of the master texts Ichigo, Ichie: the Power of One Natsukusa: skill combined with experience creates a master Kotan: the simplicity of every action when the mind and the body are in balance . . .and much more. A word of caution: This knowledge is to be used for academic study ONLY. "Jotaro's lessons can be applied with devastating effectiveness." --Dr. Haha Lung, author of Mind Penetration

Recently the West has been inundated by a steady flow of images from manga, anime, and the video games that are a key part of todays Japanese visual culture. At the same time, Japanese contemporary artists are gaining a higher profile overseas: many Westerners are already familiar with Takashi Murakamis brightly colored, cartoonlike characters, or with Junko Mizunos grotes-cute Lolita-style girls. Perhaps less familiar are the absurd fighting machines of Kenji Yanobe, the many disguises of Tomoko Sawada, or the grotesque fairytale landscapes of Tomoko Konoike. Warriors of Art features the work of forty of the latest and most relevant contemporary Japanese artists, from painters and sculptors, to photographers and performance artists, with lavish full-color spreads of their key works. Author Yumi Yamaguchi offers an insightful introduction to the main themes of each artist, and builds up a fascinating portrait of the society that has given birth to them: a Japan that still bears the scars of atomic destruction, a Japan with a penchant for the cute and the childish, a Japan whose manga and anime industries have come to dominate the world. Warriors of Art takes its title from a phrase used to describe Taro Okamoto (1911-1996), perhaps the first truly influential contemporary artist to emerge in postwar Japan, who fought to bring modern art to a wider audience. Following in Okamotos footsteps, the forty artists featured in this book are a new generation of warriors, attacking our senses with a shocking mix of the cute, the grotesque, the sexy, and the violent, forcing us to sit up and take notice of their vision of Japan.

This visionary and thoroughly accessible book examines how digital environments and virtual reality have altered the ways historians think and communicate ideas and how the new language of visualization transforms our understanding of the past. Drawing on familiar graphic models--maps, flow charts, museum displays, films--the author shows how images can often convey ideas and information more efficiently and accurately than words.
