Product Details

For the first time, readers will be able to view the secret documents on the Fischer problem, many of which have never previously been published. These include papers from the archives of the KGB, the Communist Party Central Committee, the USSR Sports Committee and the Chess Federation. Together with this, there are reports and analysis of Fischer's personality and play written at the order of the Soviet authorities by the country's leading Grandmasters--legends such as Mikhail Tal, Tigran Petrosian, Vassily Smyslov, Paul Keres, Victor Korchnoi and Efim Geller.

Also contained in Russians versus Fischer are annotations and the background on all of the 158 chess encounters between Fischer and his Soviet adversaries and a large number of rare photographs and drawings. This book is a significantly enlarged and updated version of the one first published in Russia in 1994.

Authors Dmitry Plisetsky and Sergey Voronkov are well-known chess journalists who have both in their time been deputy editor-in-chief of the famous Russian chess magazine Shakhmaty v Rossii. They are also authors of numerous chess books, their monograph David Janowski being awarded the prize of 'book of the year' by the USSR Sports Committee. Voronkov's recent works include David Against Goliath (written with David Bronstein).
