This work chronicles the chess career and games of Grandmaster Isaac Kashdan, one of the leading United States players of the 1930s (along with such notables as Fine and Reshevsky).

The main body of the work examines Kashdan's game play, with 757 of his tournament games, match games, speed games, simultaneous exhibitions, training games and consultation games included. Some games are accompanied by detailed contemporary analyses written by Kashdan and other prominent chess masters of his era, the majority are either unannotated or have brief notes.

Part one of the book (The Career of Isaac Kashdan) describes the various events in which Kashdan participated. There are numerous photographs, as well as facsimiles of correspondence. Also included are tournament crosstables and indexes of Kashdan's opponents.

Former editor of Tennessee Chess News, Peter P. Lahde has written on Albert Beauregard Hodges, Alekhine, the Hastings tournaments, the modern United States Chess Championship, and chess in Tennessee. A retired research chemist, he lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
