    Chess & Checkers - The Way to Mastership
    Catalog Code: B0348IS

    Edward Lasker was an expert and authority on many games, not only chess and checkers but also go, the Oriental game he introduced to the United States. General strategic principles rather than analyses requiring memorizing are stressed throughout the book, so that even a beginner or a player of moderate experience can understand the discussion. This method of teaching is unquestionably the most interesting and effective, because it makes the student think for himself.

    World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953

    Whenever any grandmaster of chess is asked the question “Which chess book helped you the most” or “To what book do you most attribute your success”, the answer is almost always the same.

The name of that book is: International Grandmasters Chess Tournament Zurich 1953 by David Bronstein, which is reprinted here under the more commonly used title of World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953.

    Soviet Chess
    Catalog Code: B0104IS

    This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to ''The Soviet School of Chess'' by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.

    Collection of Chess Studies by Troitzky

    Alexey Alexeyevich Troitzky (1866-1942) is considered to have been the greatest composer of chess endgame studies ever. To call him a genius is to trivialize his accomplishments, because there are many geniuses, but few can equal the output of Troitzky. In his lifetime, Troitzky composed more than one thousand chess endgame studies.
