About the Authors
  • First published in 1928, and translated from the original Japanese by Major A. P. McKenzie, this book sets out the ideas which form 'the groundwork and skeleton of the common intellectual life of the people' of Japan. The topics discussed include modesty, loyalty, the duties of Emperor and people, and patriotism. This book is a fascinating glimpse into pre-war Japanese culture, and will be of value to anyone with an interest in Japan and its people.
