Graham Burgess

Sample pages (pdf)

The best chess, 1900-1999, in historical context: like the rest of the world, the game of chess has changed enormously during the 20th century. This book surveys these developments by focusing on the top events, greatest achievements and most brilliant games, year-by-year.

This instructive and engaging book places the chess material in its historical context with a review of the main stories of each year away from the chessboard. It will delight all those with a general interest in chess and its players, whether they are seeking to improve their game, gain a better appreciation of our chess heritage, or simply looking for entertainment.

Burgess presents excerpts from the finest games, together with "Chess News in Brief" and "World News in Brief" for each year. Also included are photographs of the world’s top players from Lasker to Khalifman. Among the events covered here are the rise of hypermodernism, Soviet post-war domination, the phenomenon of Fischer and the rise of computers. An entertaining and well produced record of the first century of professional chess.

Published 2000, hardback, 208 pages.
