Zen and Japanese Culture, Volume 0, Issues 691-9842
One of this century's leading works on Zen, this book is a valuable source for those wishing to understand its concepts in the context of Japanese life and art. In simple, often poetic, language, Daisetz Suzuki describes what Zen is, how it evolved, and how its emphasis on primitive simplicity and self-effacement have helped to shape an aesthetics found throughout Japanese culture. He explores the surprising role of Zen in the philosophy of the samurai, and subtly portrays the relationship between Zen and swordsmanship,haiku, tea ceremonies, and the Japanese love of nature. Suzuki's contemplative discussion is enhanced by anecdotes, poetry, and illustrations showing silk screens, calligraphy, and examples of architecture.

Review: Zen and Japanese CultureUser Review - Craig - Goodreads
DT Suzuki is definitive of writing on Zen, so if you want to know about it on a conceptual level (not that that's possible), then Suzuki's the man. This book in particular is good to read if you want to understand Japanese culture as well. Read full review
Review: Zen and Japanese CultureUser Review - Goodreads
The second book that I read in the history of Zen after the four-volume appreciation of haiku by Suzuki's old English friend RH Blyth. A priceless entry point into the two horns of the title by a remarkable, gentle, and wise man.
