    The Chess Legacy of Jose Raul Capablanca
    Catalog Code: B0303IS

    Last Lectures is, as the name suggests, a series of lectures given over the radio by former World Chess Champion José Raúl Capablanca just a few months before he died.

Perhaps more than any other player in the history of chess, Jose Raoul Capablanca was noted for his ability to cut through the complexities of modern chess theory and find the winning line in grandmaster tournament play.
