    Saving Lost Positions
    Catalog Code: B0087IS

    CLEARANCE - A New Era
    How Garry Kasparov Changed the World of Chess
    Catalog Code: CB0018RB

    May 1997. It was the match that stunned the world: Chess Champion Garry Kasparov was beaten by the massively parallel computer, Beep Blue - an opponent that Kasparov had vanquished in 1996. But unlike his human opponents, Deep Blue could be redesigned in the intervening year. The result: the first "player" - computer or human - ever to win a match against the chess genius. Kasparov's own move-by-move analysis of these games in "A New Era" shows just how much IBM has improved the breed, and how they were spoiling for a fight in the momentous rematch. A must read for anyone who is passionate about the world's most enduring game of strategy and wits, A New Era takes the reader inside the world of professional chess, offering insiders' insights (including those of Kasparov himself) into the politics and psychology of competition at the top levels of play, whether against human or machine.

    CLEARANCE - The Schliemann Defense - Volume 1
    Catalog Code: CB0345RB

    When these two authors undertook to revise their 1983 treatment of the Schliemann Defense, they found that the opening had enjoyed such exercise in tournament (including Candidate Match) and correspondence play, that it would require four volumes to contain the current theory in adequate depth. This first volumee treats the lines after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 f5 4 Nc3 fxe4 5 Nxe4 Nf6, known as the Tartakower Variation.

    Catalog Code: CB0364RB

    Grandmaster Shamkovich and Eric Schiller present a study of a variation once deemed "quiet" which has developed into a solid defense for Black. This book provides original analysis and current tournament practice in the line, with exceptional attention to the latest developments. Here is a tournament weapon which has not received sufficient attention previously. This work advances the theory of the variation for both over-the-board and correspondence players.
