Publisher's Summary

A word that can be communicated worldwide is [Bu-shi-do]。That word was spread by this one book: Inazo Nitobe is known as an author and a portrait of 5,000 yen bills of the Bank of Japan note. When Japan seceded from the League of Nations, Inazo Nitobe appealed, "Japan under no circumstances should be an orphan of the international community. A friend of Nitobe who did not understand him uttered, "Did Nitobe come as a representative for the military"? Meanwhile in Japan, while militaristic ideas were building up, since Nitobe commented, "The Communist Party and the Military will destroy our country", this has enticed severe criticism from the military and the right wing, and many of his friends and disciples have left him. Although he has encountered hardships during his old age, he pursued "Bu-shi-do". As a contributory factor to perceiving "My Own Road", please feel the grittiness by this reading.
