This exciting book, written by an acknowledged expert in the field, presents a detailed historical account of two of the most respected and fearsome groups of fighting men in history: the samurai and the ninja. The book pinpoints the cultural origins of these warriors, tracing their development and placing them in their historical and geographical context. It describes their ethos and their methods of combat; individual attention is given to specific warriors, cults, and legends. Miller also elaborates on the considerable legacy of the samurai, exploring its continuing influence both on modern Japan and on Western culture. The work is illustrated by numerous paintings and specially commissioned photographs -- all in full color -- of weapons, uniforms, and other samurai artefacts. Samurai Warriors is part of an acclaimed series that also includes Celtic Warriors (SMP, 1998).
