From the publisher "Welcome to the only reference guide for Artisan Entertainment`s critically acclaimed motion picture, Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, written by Jim Jarmusch and starring Forest Whitaker. Ghost Dog lives by the precepts of the 18th century warrior text, Hagakure, practicing the ancient disciplines of the samurai and applying them to his work as a modern-day contract killer. This role-playing game and resource book re-creates the gangster genre as a cross-cultural fusion of Eastern philosophy, mob drama, and urban darkness. Inside you`ll find an exhaustive analysis of the film, insightful bios for all the characters, and an engaging study of Mafia organized crime in America.".
