    DYNAMIC JUDO by INOUE

    KANO RYU JIU JITUS by Harrison, Umm, should this be Kano
    Jiu jitsu by Hancock and Higashi? The only Harrison book on jiu jitsu I know of is the one with Yukio Tani, subtitled sceintific self defense for everyone. If it is Harrison, my apologies, and I have a new book to look for.

    Lots of good suggestions, the masterclass series are all excellent, Fighting Spirit of Judo by Yamashita is great, Kudo's Judo in action books are essential.

    Ronin, do you want just in print books or a list of good to great judo books going back a century?

    I am going to recommend Judo: History, Theory, Tactics by Vladimir Putin. For one thing, when the leader of a major country puts out a book on Judo, you should get it on general principle. Most importantly, however, it has these fascinating 'technical-tactical' diagrams. For several major throws (tai otoshi, seio nage, uchi mata, tomoe nage, more) it shows both a page of moves leading into the throw and a page of throws you can attempt after attempting the throw. It's really dense information and I'm picking it apart slowly, but it has already changed how I think about throwing. Which is easy to do since I'm such a n00b. :)
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    I personally find it fascinating that a head of state is very much into MA. I will bump an article I found also.
