THE CHRYSANTHEMUM AND THE SWORD
by Ruth Benedict
published by Tuttle
The Chrysanthemum and the Sword is the classic work that has defined our understanding of Japanese culture – of why it is seemingly self-contradictory, and how and why it differs from our own. The book focuses on the heart of Japanese social structure – hierarchy, marriage and family, filial piety, self discipline and other core values – explaining the fact that while much has changed, much also remains the same. Although Japan has changed drastically over the years, this masterpiece remains unsurpassed in it keen observations about Japanese culture. By shedding light on the set of core values that make the Japanese way of life unique, it reveals a great deal about culture in general, and provides a lens through which to view ourselves.
