Ray Keene has been writing the chess column every week in the venerable Spectator magazine since 1977. Since then not a week has gone by without a chess article appearing in the paper. This makes Ray the longest serving continuous contributor to The Spectator.

After a slight delay - of 27 years - the first book to anthologise the best of the Spectator columns has at last appeared. Top results, games by masters, grandmasters and champions, all furnished with detailed comments, combined with a series of chess brain teasers, complete a veritable chess education. With his outspoken views on the World Championship, the World Chess Federation and Man v Machine matches, the author also turns this book into a state of the art commentary on one of the most exciting yet turbulent phases of the development of world chess.

Publisher's Note

As you read this book you will see that it consists of a number of articles, all of which are precisely two pages long. Thus, if we start on a right hand page, the reader will have to turn the page in order to read any complete article. The format we have adopted for the text on this occasion means that each article is on a complete two-page spread.

We believe that the user-friendliness of this approach will outweigh the slight non-conformity of starting on a left hand page.
