The Five Wheel Treaty and other texts
The Japanese classic of strategy by the greatest Samurai
Miyamoto Musahsi and all his writings are gathered for the first time.
Unlike other translations based on incomplete and inaccurate versions of Musashi's work, Bennett's is the first to be based on a careful reconstruction of the long-lost original manuscript. By capturing the subtle nuances of the original Japanese classic, the result is a new, much more precise and meaningful translation of the text of the Treaty of the Five Wheels.
Richly annotated and presenting a long introduction to Musashi's life, this version includes a collection of all his other writings, some of which were translated into French for the first time. A respected scholar and a talented martial artist, Bennett's understanding of Musashi's life and work is unparalleled.
