The History of Chess in 50 Moves charts the evolution of chess through 50 chapters. The story begins in the East and follows the passage of the game along the silk trade routes as it moves west via Persia. From there it spreads to Africa, Russia and Europe, where it takes the form that is familiar to us today. The greatest players, matches and tournaments are all featured here, but equally important are the bigger trends and patterns, from the evolution of different playing styles to the emergence of computer technology. Beautifully illustrated with more than 150 historical illustrations and photographs, The History of Chess in 50 Moves also includes numerous diagrams, bringing some of the most famous moves and matches to life.
