Über diesen Titel


The Urban Samurai is a satirical spoof of financial self-help books that flooded the American market in the late 80's and early 90's, particularly those that exalted the "Japanese economic miracle." Hilarious cartoons parodying Ukiyo-e woodblock prints adorn every page of the Urban Samurai.

From the Inside Flap:

You've read Japan as Number One, take karate lessons, and eat tofu, but you still can't figure out why Japan is one of the world's dominant financial powers. Mainlining soy sauce doesn't help either, because the real force behind that phenomenon called Japan is the Japanese male himself, the Urban Samurai.The Urban Samurai culturally advanced beyond the imagination of any Westerner: His pre-historic ancestors were soaking in hot tubs before Los Angeles was invented, and were heating high-tech designer foods before Western man could handle a spoon.With the yen rate soaring, sushi bars putting delicatessens into extinction, and Fortune 500 companies issuing quarterly reports in Japanese, it is not just helpful - but a matter of survival - to understand that prodigy of the industrialized world, the Urban Samurai.
