The Oxford companion to chess by David Hooper( Book )

33 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first edition of The Oxford Companion to Chess, published in 1984, won an outstanding reputation for its accuracy and interest. Written by the same authors, this new edition retains the original groundplan but is around 20 per cent longer. All entries have been scrutinized, revised, and updated to take account of the most recent events and the latest research. There are hundreds of completely new entries including over 160 new biographies (most of them of contemporary players), several hundred more names of openings, and many more technical terms. In addition, virtually all of the game scores and compositions are new to the book and there are more of them than before. The Companion is intended to provide an overview, with a historical coverage ranging from the earliest myths describing the game's invention right up to the semifinals of the 1993 World Championship cycle. It embraces all branches of the game, including over-the-board play, correspondence chess and other forms of telechess, problems, and major regional variations, such as Chinese and Japanese chess, as well as various unorthodox forms. Types of entry include biographies of all the major figures, named openings and their variations (linked to a tabulated index of openings by moves), laws, strategies, playing and problem terms, and a host of topics such as computers and chess, philately and chess, and the representation of the game in literature, art, theatre, and film. Alphabetical arrangement of the 2,600 entries and the network of linking cross-references ensure easy access to what J.R. Feagin, reviewing the first edition in Choice, called 'a veritable gold mine of historical, sociological and technical information on the most ancient of board games'."--Jacket
