"Marvelous... A rare scholarly attempt to depict a warrior who strove for saving human lives in contrast to that long-term aspect of Japanese warrior culture that emphasizes violence. It is particularly timely for our age of turmoil and anxiety." --Roman Anshin, Emeritus Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine
