About The Chess Highlights of the 20th Century - Burgess

The best chess, 1900-1999, in historical context: like the rest of the world, the game of chess has changed enormously during the 20th century. This book surveys these developments by focusing on the top events, greatest achievements and most brilliant games, year-by-year.

This instructive and engaging book places the chess material in its historical context with a review of the main stories of each year away from the chessboard. It will delight all those with a general interest in chess and its players, whether they are seeking to improve their game, gain a better appreciation of our chess heritage, or simply looking for entertainment.

Author FIDE Master Graham Burgess holds the world record for marathon blitz chess-playing. He is a highly versatile chess writer, whose 17 previous books range from general guides for relatively inexperienced players to high-level theoretical manuals. His Mammoth Book of Chess won the 1997 British Chess Federation Book of the Year Award, while Nunn's Chess Openings, to which he contributed, is set to become one of the best-selling chess books of all time.
