New York 1924 by Alexander Alekhine
Paperback, 352 pages
One of the most remarkable and famous chess tournaments ever took place in New York City in March and April of 1924. It had a narrative that is still striking today: Three world champions - undisputed world champions, mind you - fulfilling their destiny. The stunning performance of the 55-year-old former world champion Emanuel Lasker. The seemingly invincible reigning world champion, Jose Raul Capablanca, suffering his first loss in eight years. And all 110 tournament games deeply annotated by future world champion Alexander Alekhine.
The tournament book that Alekhine produced became the stuff of legend. He provides real analysis, and with words, not just moves. He imbues the book with personality, on the one hand ruthlessly objective, and on the other, candidly subjective.
This is a modern "21st Century Edition" of Alekhine's classic, using figurine algebraic notation, adding many more diagrams, but preserving the original, masterful text and annotations, including Alekhines fascinating overview of the opening theory at that time.
