Chess endings : essential knowledge by I︠U︡ Averbakh( Book )

24 editions published between 1960 and 1999 in 6 languages and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As its title implies, this book brings together all the information which the author considers necessary to provide the average chessplayer with a working knowledge of the endgame. It is concerned with the basic points, particularly those which are most often encountered in practice. This first chapter describes the elementary mates and can be understood by the beginner. Thereafter the standard is gradually raised in order to include material which the club, country, and tournament competitor needs to have at his command in the last and longest chapter the reader is shown how the theory which he has learnt is employed in practical endings. The author has presented his material in such a way that a reader knowing only the rudiments of the game (e.g. the moves and notation) can progress step by step to quite an advanced standard well within his scope. At the same time, the expert player can profit from this book by using it to revise and widen his knowledge of the endgame." --

A history of chess : from Chaturanga to the present day by I︠U︡ Averbakh( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chess - the Royal Game - is an ancient board game, perhaps fifteen hundred years old. There are many legends about how chess came to be. Most of them are folk tales and are far from reality. Arguably more books have been written about chess than all the other games combined, but relatively little has been written about the history of chess. The topic is difficult; it requires thorough knowledge, and there are still many unknown historical pitfalls. It is therefore no surprise that there exist a variety of hypotheses concerning the origin of chess. In this book, the author, legendary Russian grandmaster Yuri Averbakh, presents a well-researched and documented theory about the origins, development and spread of this immensely popular game
Pawn endings by I︠U︡ Averbakh( Book )

Despite increased research interest in the interaction of native North American peoples and Europeans, little attention has been directed toward Indian-French interactions--even though for more than a century the French controlled an area of the interior more than twice the size of the combined North American territories of Britain and Spain. Calumet and Fleur-de-Lys focuses on historic Native American sites and archaeological evidence of native interaction with the French from the landing of Jean Nicollet in Green Bay in 1634 to the surrender of French America to the British in 1765. It integrates, for the first time, historical documents of the French politicians, explorers, priests, and traders with the archaeological record of numerous midcontinental native and French colonial sites. The essays cover the full range of French America--from the mouth of the Mississippi to the Great Lakes region--and examine topics as diverse as the protohistoric native cultures of the Midwest, French traders among the Sioux of northern Minnesota, Indian-French military relations in Louisiana and on the Wabash, the Indian deerskin trade of the Southeast, Huron refugees in Michigan, and Illini hunting camps and villages in Illinois. Most previous research into French America, including Francis Parkman's classic histories, has centered on "great men"--LaSalle, Marquette, Joliet, and Nicollet. Calumet and Fleur-de-Lys demonstrates the potential of the archaeological record to expand the history of native cultures and Indian-French relations in the contact era
