This book is perhaps unique in that it was written by a professional educator who also plays chess, rather than by a professional chess player who also wrote. Dr. Milton Finkelstein was Director of the New York City Department of Education who wrote several other books in the education field.
Self-Taught Chess for Beginners and Intermediates

The Patterns of Winning Mating Attacks and How to Achieve Them. This is a complete book on different checkmate strategies.
Nimzovich the Hypermodern is based on years of research and careful study of Nimzovich's games. Reinfeld has frankly aimed at a popular work by avoiding over-long games and too detailed notes. In consequence, he has produced a work which enables every chess player to relish Nimzovich's subtle, original play
Nimzovich the Hypermodern
One of the best chess articles ever written about chess appeared in the June-September 1979 issue: ''How the Whales Got Unlucky at Masson'', again by the poet chess master Dennis Fritzinger. This was John Larkins last issue as Editor. Chess Voice was again voted the ''Best State or Regional Publication of 1979.''

Report On the Chess Match of the Century
AT LAST- after cancellations, protests, demands, disappearances, apologies, reporter limitations, referee uncertaincies, chessboard glares, unsuitable chairs and disputes about lighting, noise, and player and audience distance were resolved-at last Bobby Fischer was in Iceland and ready to play. Jully 11, 1972, the Green Day, had arrived at last...
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
July-August 1974 to May-June 1976
This is the last volume of California Chess Reporter and it contains the last issue of this publication, May-June 1976 issue. The last issue explains the reason why the publication was closing down. At the 1976 Delegates meeting of the US Chess Federation, a motion had been made to split the state of California in two for chess purposes. This had passed without significant debate or opposition. Similar motions had often been made at meetings of the California State Chess Federation and had repeatedly been voted down. The USCF Delegates seemingly knew nothing about this; it seems that nobody from Northern California was on-hand to explain the consequences of their proposed action
The California Chess Reporter - VOLUME 9
July-August 1971 to May-June 1974
In 1971-1974, there was a great increase in chess activity world wide because of the 1972 Fischer Spassky Match in Iceland. In California, there was the emergence of talented new players and the departures of some old ones. Louis D. Statham (1907–1983) established his famous series of tournaments in Lone Pine, California. Every year it got stronger as grandmasters throughout the world came in increasing numbers and the cash prizes got bigger. It eventually became annually the strongest Swiss System tournament in the world. First winner was Larry Evans who moved to nearby Reno, Nevada.

This book is a good read. Even without playing over the games, readers will find it enjoyable.
Great Chess Upsets
Samuel Reshevsky is the ideal person to write a book on positional play because that was exactly the way he played: positionally. Reshevsky preferred to crush his opponents slowly, like a python, rather than to win with a blaze of tactics.

This book discusses the first Russian grandmasters and prominent masters, such luminaries as Mikhail Chigorin, Alexander Alekhine, Mikhail Botvinnik, Vasily Smyslov, Paul Keres, Alexander Kotov, Boris Spassky, Mikhail Tal, Alexander Tolush and many others.
