    • SHOPWORN - Garry Kasparov on Modern Chess - VOLUME II
      Kasparov vs. Karpov - 1975-1985
      This volume concentrates on the first two of those matches. The epic 1984/85 contest which was lasted six months before being controversially halted "without result" by the then President of FIDE Florencio Campomanes. The 1985 match when Kasparov brilliantly won the final game to take the title and become - at the age of 22 - the youngest ever world champion. Great chess contests have often had resonances extending beyond the 64 squares. The Fischer v Spassky match was played during the Cold War with both champions being perceived as the finest products of their respective ideologies.

    • Grandmaster Preparation
      In this remarkable book, Soviet grandmaster Lev Polugayevsky, one of the world's leading players over the past two decades, describes his highly personal approach to chess, which is based on meticulous practice. In the opening, he is constantly striving to surprise his opponents, and this has led to his developing one of the sharpest lines in the Sicilian Defence, which has rightly become known as the Polugayevsky Variation.
