Book Description Moscow Marathon is the definitive account of the 1984-1985 World Chess Championship between Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov.

Billed as the "match of the century", it became a unique test of endurance and ended in chaos and controversy. The book is aimed at the reader with an interest in chess and combines detailed scrutiny of the games with an eye-witness account of the proceedings in Moscow.

No other record of the match has this combination of careful research and constant, on-the-spot reporting.
