"Samurai and Silk" is a rare treasure: a book of penetrating insight into t he Japanese character and the forging of modern Japan from the feudal Tokug awa shoguns to present day economic titans. Only Haru Reischauer could have written this extraordinary family account, beginning with her two illustri ous grandfathers: one, a provincial samurai who became a founding father of the Meiji government; the other, a scion of a wealthy and enterprising pea sant family who almost single-handedly developed the silk trade with Americ a. Their remarkable stories, and those of their notable descendants, demons trate the unbounded vision and determination that explain so much about Jap an's legendary success.
