Garry Kasparov
Garry Kasparov On My Great Predecessors (Part One)

This magnificent compilation of chess forms the basis of the first part of Garry Kasparov's definitive history of the World Chess Championship. Kasparov, who is (almost) universally acclaimed as the greatest chessplayer ever, subjects the play of his predecessors to a rigorous analysis in the 148 games included in this book.

Part one features the play of champions Wilhelm Steinitz (1886-1894), Emanuel Lasker (1894-1921), Jose Capablanca (1921-1927) and Alexander Alekhine (1927-1935 and 1937-1946) as well as looking at "Chess Before Steinitz".

Kasparov also finds space to show some games of unsuccessful pretenders to the title such as Chigorin, Rubinstein, Reti, Marshall, Nimzowitsch and Tarrasch. He places each champion in their historical and cultural context as well as explaining how their individual style advanced the development of the game as a whole.
