    Book DescriptionThis much-await clash between two giants of the chess world attracted vast interest among all chess players.

    Garry Kasparov, the 20-year old Grandmaster from Baku, is already the second highest ranked player in the world and has won several top tournaments including the Soviet Championship. 52 year old Victor Korchnoi was a Grandmaster before Kasparov was even born and already had played two matches for the world title.

    The whole future of the World Championship, carefully nutured since 1948, was at stack when Acorn Computers, with generous sponsorship and England's FIDE (World Chess Federation) delegate Raymond Keene brought the match to London.

    The battle between Kasparov's direct style and youthful optimism and Korchnoi's fighting spirit and habitual time-trouble was certain to provide an intriguing contest.

    Grandmaster Raymond Keene, formerly British Champion, was Korchnoi's second in 1979 and was uniquely placed to analyze the respective styles of each player.
