    The Modern Morra Gambit
    A Dynamic Weapon Against the Sicilian
    Catalog Code: B0054RE

    In this completely revised second edition, the author probes the secrets of this gambit with tactical acuity and strategic objectivity. He concludes that ''Most of Black's defensive systems objectively offer acceptable prospects in a complicated battle.

The positions that arise are extremely difficult to play, especially if the defender is not familiar with them.

    The Modern Chess Instructor
    Foreward by Andy Soltis
    Catalog Code: B0104RE

    More than 125 years ago, one of the first great chess books appeared. The Modern Chess Instructor, Part I, written by then world champion Wilhelm Steinitz, was released in 1889. It was his magnum opus, setting forth for the first time the principles of modern chess. It is no exaggeration to say that Steinitz’s writings have influenced every great player. This 21st century edition has converted the archaic English descriptive notation to algebraic and reformatted the text so that it conforms to the expectations of the 21st century chessplayer. The Modern Chess Instructor’s rare second part, published in 1895, has also been added. The result is a genuine treasure trove of original ideas coupled with exposition of the foundation of modern chess theory. Every chessplayer will find The Modern Chess Instructor enjoyable and instructive, a journey back to the theoretical roots of modern chess.
