Garry Kasparov

Volume three of the "Kasparov on Modern Chess" series lives up to the high standard set by previous volumes with ex World Champion Garry Kasparov providing in-depth annotations to all the games from his third and fourth World Championship matches (London/Leningrad 1986 and Seville 1987) against Anatoly Karpov. In addition, he offers his detailed views on the political intrigue which accompanied all the K-K clashes; both players having their supporters in the Soviet chess hierarchy. The year in-between these two titanic matches saw the formation of the Grandmasters' Association (GMA), as a result of disputes between the World's leading Grandmasters and the International Chess Federation (FIDE). Kasparov was instrumental in the founding of the GMA and describes the background to it's formation and the response of FIDE.

Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov are unquestionably the protagonists who featured in the greatest ever chess rivalry. Between 1984 and 1990 they contested five long matches for the World Championship. All of these matches were tremendously hard fought and produced chess of a high level.

In this volume Garry Kasparov (World Champion between 1985 and 2000 and generally regarded as the greatest player ever) analyses in-depth the clashes from 1986 and 1987, giving his opinion on the background to the matches as well as the games themselves.

Published 2009, hardback, 432 pages.
