Description

"How Zen influenced Art, Architecture, Literature, Sports, Ceramics, Theatre" is the way the cover describes this free e-book by Thomas Hoover.
Library Journal said, “Hoover covers the ground in an easy and informative way, describing the origins of Zen itself and the Zen roots of swordsmanship, architecture, food, poetry, drama, ceramics, and many other areas of Japanese life. The book is packed with facts, the bibliography is excellent, the illustrations few but most appropriate, and the style clear and smooth. A most useful book for all collections.”
