The game of chess exerts a fascination unequalled by any comparable activity, and recent years have seen an ever-increasing number of people playing the game. This Companion covers all aspects of chess, with over 650 entries describing more than 200 games, and named openings and their

variations. The history of chess receives complete coverage, as do the major figures of the game, chess strategies, playing and problem terms, as well as related topics such as computers, and the representation of chess in art, literature and film. The usefulness of this volume is enhanced by a

glossary of chess terms, and extensive illustrations integrated within the text.

For players of all levels and for those who follow tournaments and championships, The Oxford Companion to Chess provides a wealth of useful and entertaining facts.
