The book Spirit of the Warrior by A. R. Basov is a creative research on the legacy of samurai. It contains numerous aphorisms and sayings of Japanese warriors, stories, and philosophical reflections. The focus of the book is the concept of Will - the basis of Bushi-Do. The book casts light on several aspects of the esoteric Samurai Doctrine which cannot be missed if you truly seek to comprehend Bushi-Do...

  • The PDF e-book works on Windows-based computers and on Android-based smartphones and tablets (through a special application). The application for iOS is out as well, so you can read it on Apple devices, such as iPhones and iPads.
  • (Please note that the book is not compatible with Kindle and other e-book readers!)

  • As a classic hardcover limited edition illustrated by Tatiana Basova, who is also one of the translators and a Japanologist, it is for pre-order only; it will take one month to fulfill your order.
  • You can also watch the video about Russian limited editions of Spirit of the Warrior:
