My Great Fascination for the Japanese Culture (or anything Japanese for that matter) was on overdrive the whole time reading this book. Samurais and Katanas,yes :)
In this book, Sir Boye Lafayette De Mente, have identified the positive factors in *Bushido that were primarily responsible for the astounding economic success of the Japanese and still today play a vital role on their economic prowess. Basically, demystifying the Samurai Code of ethics.
These are some of the excerpts from the book:
"..."BUSHIDO" (Buu-she-doh), the ethical system of Japan's famous samurai class, which ruled the country from 1192 until 1868, eventually came to encompass every aspect of the lives of the people-their philosophical and spiritual beliefs, their etiquette, their family life, their dress, their work, their aesthetic sense, their etiquette, even their recreation.."
"..Over generations, the culture of the Samurai became so deeply embedded in the consciousness of the Japanese that it was difficult, if not impossible, for them to think outside of its parameters. the control it exercised over their attitudes and behavior was virtually infinite. And It was, in fact, the samurai culture that made it possible for Japan to achieve extraordinary economic and military success from 1870 to the debacle of the war with the United States in the 1940's,and to rebound from that defeat and destruction in less than thirty years and, astoundingly, became the second largest economy in the world..."

Read information about the authorBoyé Lafayette De Mente has been involved with Japan, China, Korea and Mexico since the late 1940s as a member of a U.S. intelligence agency, student, journalist, editor and author working out of Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico City. He is a graduate of Jochi University in Tokyo, and The American Institute for Foreign Trade (in 1953), now Thunderbird School of Global Management, in Glendale, Arizona, USA.
De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world!
His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time "pink" trades in Japan, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations. He has also written extensively about his home state of Arizona and Mexico.
