A Jew born and raised in Kobe, Japan, Ben-Dasan presents in this book a thoughtful, in-the-know study of two peoples whose worlds he has seen and lived in. His method of comparing and contrasting the Japanese and the Jews is extensive, intelligent, personal, even anecdotal; and he backed it with an in-depth study of history, literature, geography, politics, religion and other relevant aspects that brought these two groups of people to rise and be where they are now.

Insightful book into the thinking of the Japanese. Ben-Dasan is a pseudoname for Shichihei Yamamoto, who published this book in 1970. I've read the book in Japanese and believe this translation is excellent.

The book compares and contrasts similarities and differences between the 2 cultures, and exhibits fascinating insight, from views of law, to views of safety, to views of nationalism. Reading it almost 50 years later, it's interesting to see how Japanese culture has shifted somewhat.

山本七平に対する評価はいろいろあるらしいが、面白い視点で書かれた本。

これを全部信じる信じないという話ではなく、物ごとを立体的に見るのにはとっても役立つ本だとみた。

どうかな。
