It has taken a little longer than expected, but we have now in stock Part One of Garry Kasparov on Modern Chess, the new book series by the greatest chess player. In future parts of this series Garry Kasparov will cover: All his matches with Karpov His selected games His matches against computers.

Part One, which we are shipping now, is called: Revolution in the 70's. Kasparov explains how the overall picture of chess openings changed almost beyond recognition, starting with the match Fischer -- Spasski Bobby Fischer (who, by the way, today celebrates his 64th birthday!) demonstrated the need for deep preparation with both colours, expanded the range of opening knowledge and laid the foundations for present day chess. The dynamics of the game increased sharply, and as a result chess players moved away from narrow specialisation towards a broad range of knowledge. Kasparov shows how universal set ups appeared, how thinking about chess openings moved towards thinking in categories of middlegame positions. The 23 chapters of this book are much more than Garry Kasparov's look at an important part of the history of the game of chess. It is, at the same time, nothing less than a spectacular masterclass. Please, have a look at this extraordinary book.
