Product Details

Hypermodern chess strategy was the single most devastating innovation of 20th Century chess thought. Fuled by such towering figures as Aron Nimzowitsch and Richard Reti, hypermodern ideas forced their way into prominence and blazed the trail for the dynamic adoption by the Soviet chess school of defenses such as the King's Indian and the Grunfeld. With both of these championed by Gary Kasparov, the greatest player of all time, it is clear that hypermodern openings and defenses are still setting the agenda as chess enters the 21st century.

Author Raymond Keene is an International Grandmaster, who has played top board for England in the chess Olympics. He is chess correspondent of the Times (London) and the Spectator (London) and presented the 1993 Kasparov-Short match. He has written more than seventy chess books and was awarded an OBE for services to chess in 1985. Eric Schiller is a US Master and the author of many successful books on chess.
