Garry Kasparov

In this, the first part of a new autobiographical series, Garry Kasparov looks at opening developments in the 1970s when he was an up and coming young player. In the aftermath of Bobby Fischer's triumph in Reykjavik there was an explosion in the number of chess tournaments taking place and also in the number of new opening ideas being tested. Previously shunned systems such as the Sveshnikov Sicilian and Hedgehog setup were tested at the top level and a re-evaluation of many opening "tabiyas" was undertaken. By the end of the 1970s opening theory had advanced dramatically and the basis of modern chess (i.e. concrete analysis and constant innovation) was set in place.

In this book Kasparov analyses 113 of the key games which formed part of this opening revolution. In 23 chapters, covering a wide range of openings, he explains the evolution of ideas in each system by careful examination of Grandmaster games. A final chapter contains the thoughts of 28 leading players from the era on the most important developments of the 1970s.

Garry Kasparov was World Chess Champion from 1985 to 2000 and is now a renowned commentator and author on the game.

Published 2007, hardback, 416 pages.
