    The vast majority of opening guides are written for adult readers. This book is also devoted to the theory but it is junior. The structure of the book is simple and attractive: openings are examined using examples from actual games, each of which is presented in the form of a lesson with its own name. Several such lessons form an opening theme, and the examination of each theme concludes with exercises. In each opening, attention is drawn to its characteristic tactical and strategic ideas of combinations for independent solution strictly corresponds to the opening theme. Written in clear and easy language, the book is furnished with a large number of diagrams.

    In the vast ocean of chess literature there are relatively few books about the endgame, and only a few of them can be considered true chess classics. And the most outstanding among the classics — Reuben Fine's book "Basic Chess Endings". Reuben Fine (1914−1993) was for a long time one of the best chess players in the world. As an author, Fine showed himself to be an excellent analyst who understood the full depth and peculiarities of the endgame. Having studied various types of standard positions, Fine established useful rules for practical play and proved himself to be an experienced teacher who, using skillfully chosen examples, was able to teach the reader all the necessary lessons and introduce him to the basic ideas of the endgame. Many generations of chess players in different countries of the world keep copies of “Basic Chess Endings”. For example, Mikhail Botvinnik considered Fine's work the most worthy of all that had ever been written on endgame theory.

    This tiny book is about struggle, a subject not readily discussed in the present-day European political correctness milieu. The author is one of the first great chess masters who know very well that the higher is a chess-player's skill the greater is his freedom. Lasker's comments on strategy and tactics, on principles of saving forces, on the logic of struggle for survival and the principle of justice are certainly interesting. Logics have been excluded from the school curriculum and an acquaintance with Lasker's book yet again suggests that this is probably a serious omission.  ISBN: 9785973900915 Author (s): Lasker Series: Ideology Publisher: Europe Language: Russian Format: 11.5x15x0.7cm Pages: 132 p.
