Craig Pritchett

Sample pages (pdf)

The revolutionary Wilhelm Steinitz (1836-1900) considered himself to be in the vanguard of an emerging late 19th century "Modern School" which embraced new, essentially scientific methods of analysis, evaluation and planning.

Steinitz, who dominated the chess world in the shadow of the more directly attacking, tactical and combinative "romantic" age, established a much firmer positional basis to chess.

This book follows that story, both before and beyond Steinitz' era, focusing on the ways in which the world's greatest players in the last two centuries have thought about and played the game, contributing to it's evolution.

The author shows examples of play from all sixteen "classical" world champions and other leading players of their day, ending with the modern artificial intelligence phenomenon, AlphaZero.

Craig Pritchett is an International Master and former Socttish Champion. He represented Scotland in nine chess olympiads from 1966 to 1990, including four on top board.

Published 2022, softback, 324 pages.
