  2. Mikhail Chigorin

    Mikhail Chigorin

    Mikhail Chigorin (1850-1908), the first great Russian chess master, belongs to that select group of exceptionally strong players who did not quite succeed in winning the world championship. He remains universally admired for his creative and courageous style of play. He would always play to win, not only by his famed dashing attacks but also by precise calculation of variations, purposeful maneuvering and exploitation of positional weaknesses, artful defense and refined endgame play. This book is a hugely expanded second edition of a book published in 1987.

  3. Aron Nimzowitsch - 1928-1935

    Aron Nimzowitsch - 1928-1935

    Every chess player who is serious about improving his game, should study the lessons of Aron Nimzowitsch (1886-1935). 'My System' (published in 1925) and 'Chess Praxis' (1928) had tremendous impact and made Nimzowitsch one of the most influential chess thinkers of the 20th century. His books continue to be printed, sold and read to this day. Reinhardt’s collection starts where Nimzowitsch’s second volume Chess Praxis ends. It offers a unique view of the chess world of the late 1920s and 1930s, its top tournaments and the state of theory.

  5. CLEARANCE - Bobby Fischer for Beginners

    CLEARANCE - Bobby Fischer for Beginners

    Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all. The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.
