Garry Kasparov on Modern Chess - VOLUME IV
Korchoi and Karpov
This book, the fifth in Garry Kasparov's magnificent history of the World Chess Championship, catalogues the ''post-Fischer'' period in the 1970's and early 1980's. This period was dominated by Anatoly Karpov (world champion from 1975-1985) and his three-time challenger, Viktor Korchnoi. Anatoly Karpov gained the right to challenge Bobby Fischer for the world title by winning through the Candidates series in 1974. As is well known, Fischer refused to defend the title and in 1975 Karpov became champion by default. Although he did not have to contest a Championship match to gain the title, Karpov proved that he was a worthy champion by winning virtually every major tournament over the next decade.
Garry Kasparov on My Great Predecessors - VOLUME V
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.

As a Chess Master who has spent many years playing aggressive and attacking chess, I was quite dismayed during a recent visit to my local bookstore.

Many of the books were simply a small collection of attack games with no instruction about the art of attacking or about the skills required to become a great attacker.
