About this title

Synopsis:

Alekhine's games and writings inspired me from an early age. ...I fell in love with the rich complexity of his ideas at the chessboard. ...I hope readers of this book will feel similarly inspired by Alekhine's masterpieces. - from the Foreword by Garry Kasparov.

Alexander Alekhine captivated the chess world with his dazzling combinative play. His genius has been a strong influence on every great player since, none more so than World Champion Garry Kasparov. This book contains a selection of the very best of Alekhine's annotations of his own games, coverted to algebraic by John Nunn. These games span his career from the early encounters with Lasker, Tarrasch and Rubinstein, through his world title battles, to his meetings with the new generation of players who were to dominate chess in 1950s. 304 pages.
