Between 1972 and 1975 alone, progress in the field of opening theory was more significant than in the entire preceding decade. Under the influence of Fischer, who imparted a great impetus to the development of the game, chess was radically regenerated. This process, with increasing acceleration, also continued in later years. As a result, the overall picture in the openings changed almost beyond recognition.By studying this fascinating book, the reader will certainly learn a great deal, discover things that are unexpected, and see how rapidly and inexorably chess development approached the computer era. Hardback complete with dust jacket. In very good condition, clean and unmarked.
