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.
