Translator's note:

Mikhail Botvinnik's Analiticheskie i kriticheskie raboty [Analytical and critical works] were originally published in four volumes between 1984 and 1987. The first three volumes covered his best games, and an English translation of these has already been published by Moravian Chess (Botvinnik's Best Games Volumes 1, 2 and 3).

The fourth volume contained the author's collected writings, and for the present English publication this material has been divided among three books, of which this is the first. These books will also include all Botvinnik's known games (apart from the 381 already published in the Best Games series), with annotations by Botvinnik where available.

The resulting six-volume series will therefore present a complete collection of Botvinnik's own game annotations and the best of his chess writings.

To avoid encumbering the text, other translator's notes are given at the back of the book.
