    The Development of Chess Style
    Catalog Code: B0235IS

    This is essentially a book on chess history, showing how different styles of chess play became popular and flourished and then faded in popularity, such as for example the Hyper-Modern Style of play that became ''All the Rage'' in the 1920s and 1930s.

    The Development of Chess Style

    Grandmaster Chess
    The Book of the Louis D. Statham Lone Pine Masters-Plus Tournament 1975
    Catalog Code: B0055IS

    Lone Pine 1975 was the first ever truly Grandmaster Swiss event. Today, with many grandmaster Swiss events taking place every year, such as the Aeroflot Open, the Reykjavik Open, and many others, not to mention the World Open, bringing together 22 grandmasters to play in a Swiss tournament does not seem that remarkable. Even the title, Grandmaster Chess, seems to be a bit hackneyed with so many grandmaster events being played today.
