    Essays In American Chess History
    Catalog Code: B0030CA

    Essays in American Chess History has been a joy to create. Unlike larger, book length works, the essays here are self-contained, small or at least smaller units, each devoted to a different facet of the game that fascinates, infuriates, and forever will remain mysterious to us all, regardless of the many advancements made in modern technology. The essays may be read individually as well as collectively, and offer the reader glimpses into byways of the past long neglected. They record as well, at least for me, a progression in my thinking about chess, history, and their interrelationship.
