About This Book

The Chrysanthemum and the Sword is the highly-influential, timeless work behind much of our past and present understanding of Japanese culture. Why is it seemingly so self-contradictory and How and why does Japanese culture differ from our own are just some of the questions addressed in this landmark 1946 study. Its focus on the very heart of Japanese social structure including hierarchy, marriage and family, filial piety, self-discipline, and other core values illuminates the fact that while much of the culture has changed, much will stay the same.
