Annotation

With stunning color illustrations, Roach, a Utah educator who is an avid student of Japanese culture and martial arts, introduces the traditional Japanese sword and swordsmanship in historical, technological, and cultural context. With a passion for preserving this tradition, he covers swords in the early, Nara, medieval, Edo, and modern periods. The book includes poems, a bibliography, and a DVD featuring a documentary on traditional sword making, scenes from an iaido (martial art) class, and a Kyoto's shop introduction to the Japanese sword.
