Not strictly an aikido text and not to be confused with the book of the same name compiled by John Stevens, Ohsawa's ART OF PEACE is a reworking of his earlier work THE BOOK OF JUDO.
This is not a technical manual by any measure, but rather, an interesting and controversial exposition of Ohsawa's ideas about the relationships between judo, aikido, budo, macrobiotics, and world peace.
Translated into English by William Gleason, himself a Boston-based rokudan instructor and author in his own right.
These are new, not used copies of the work, priced to move.
