Title: The Evolution of Chess Opening Theory from Philidor to Kasparov [Pergamon Chess Series].
Description: Oxford Pergamon Press, 1985. 1st ed. Paperback trade, very good condition, figures, minor edgewear, scuff mark sticker removal front flyleaf, faint foxing top edge. 220 pp. Traces the development of opening theory from the time of Philidor to the present day. He shows how chess thinking has evolved from past dogmatism, where a particular opening was judged according to general principles formulated by a few top masters, to the current situation in which principles tend to go by the board and each variation is analysed on its own merits. Each stage of this evolution is illustrated by the inclusion of extracts from contemporary sources. ISBN: 0080241271.
