Garry Kasparov

The history of sport has seen many great clashes but few have rivalled the intensity of the struggle between those two great world chess champions: Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov. Between 1984 and 1990 they contested an astonishing five World Championship matches consisting of 144 individual encounters. This volume concentrates on the first two of those matches:

* The epic 1984-85 contest which was lasted six months before being controversially halted (without result) by the then President of FIDE Florencio Campomanes.
* The 1985 match when Kasparov won the nail-biting final game to take the title and become - at the age of 22 - the youngest ever world champion.

These games have been annotated before by Kasparov in his books on the matches but, with the aid of computer analysis and greater maturity and experience, his current comments are a more accurate account both of the games and the political atmosphere at the time.

Published 2008, hardback, 424 pages.
