Alekhine's games and writings inspired me from an early age...I fell inlove 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 Alexahnder Alekhine captivated the chess world with his dazzling combatitive play. His genius has been a strong influence on every great player since, none more so than Garry Kasparov. This book contains a selection of the very best of Alekhine's annotation of his own games, converted to algebraic by John Nunn. These games span his career from the early encounters with Lasker, Tarrasch and Rubenstein, through his world title battles, to his meetings with the new generation of players who were to dominate chess in the 1950s.

About the author (2011)

Alexander Alekhine was World Champion from 1927 to 1935 and again from 1937 to his death in March 1946. His life was as turbulent as his chess; his long- standing feud with his great rival Capablanca is legendary, as is his vilification, and posthumous elevation to hero status in the then Soviet Russia.
