Chess Highlights of the 20th Century: The Best Chess 1900-1999 in Historical Context by Graham 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.

Reaction by an Amazon reader:
"A special recommendation [and prize] goes to Graham Burgess and "Gambit" publications for their new book, "Chess Highlights of the 20th Century." (Published, 1999.) A beautiful hard-back book, well worth the [money] that I paid for it! This has got to be one of the best books of the last 25 years for a lot of different reasons. A game or a part of a game represents each year. There is also a list of the most outstanding chess accomplishments of that year. There are bunches of really great photo's in the center of the book. And there is a brief recap of each of the most important news [historical] events, from an international viewpoint, for each year. A book for the real collector of fine and beautiful chess books. Destined to be a Classic!!"
