Aikido and the New Warrior

Book Summary:

The editor, Richard Strozzi Heckler, says of Ueshiba O-Sensei, "Through the techniques developed in Aikido he brought to the world an alternative to our current form of heavy-handed militarism and turn-the-other-cheek pacifism....This anthology represents the expression of this New Warrior." Heckler presents interviews with or excerpts from the writings of seventeen Aikidoists (three of them women) who in some way have taken Aikido in a new direction exemplifying this "warrior" spirit. There is a short introduction by Heckler, and at the end of the book very brief bios on the contibutors and some suggestions for further reading. Also available in hardback, ISBN 0938190563.
