Modern Chess Strategy by the well-known Czech Grandmaster and theorist Ludek Pachman, is widely recognized on the continent of Europe as the standard work on the middle-game. English-speaking enthusiasts now have the opportunity to study this chess classic, ably translated by the Irish International player Alan S. Russell. The aim of the book is to help the player to recognize the characteristic features of a position and to plan his campaign accordingly. The author begins with an examination of the individual pieces and then discusses the problem of the center, material and space advantage on a particular section of the board, pawn formations, and some general problems the chess struggle. Illustrations are drawn from games spanning many periods of chess, with a predominance of examples from recent tournaments, many of them the author's own games. Good books on the indeterminate stage of chess between openings and endings are rare. Ambitious players wanting a practical guide to the middle game will find that Ludek Pachman's great trilogy, which is completed with this volume, stands in a class of its own. "A careful study of this well translated book can hardly fail to improve the readers standard of play." Scottish Chess Association. " . . . it has come to be rated as a standard work, and the English edition should be all the more welcome and useful." New Statesman.

Continuing his major work on strategy and tactics in modern chess, the internationally renowned Grandmaster, Ludek Pachman, now turns his attention to the play of the pawns and the achievement of control of the center squares. Though the pawns are the weakest pieces in chess, their importance in determining the character of the attack (and defense) and the development of strategic play cannot be underestimated. Pawns are essential to the protection of important squares and pieces. They are the best means of blockading enemy pawns and when correctly deployed, their advance can open vital files and diagonals, thereby creating weaknesses in the opposite position. Despite its limited power, the pawn has one special advantage over other pieces in that it can be promoted when it reaches the eighth rank; a successful pawn advance can completely change the balance of power and the outcome of a game. Pawns have aptly been described as "the soul of chess." Vital to chess mastery is a basic understanding of the importance of control of the center squares. The effectiveness of the pieces depend upon the strength of their position and center control creates a vital spatial superiority. The pieces gain in power as they exert influence over more spaces. Control not only allows increased maneuverability, but restricts the possibilities open to the opponent. The effective play of the pawns and center control have been touched upon in other works, but seldom with the insight and lucidity revealed in this second volume of Pachman's masterwork.

In this enlarged edition of a modern classic (first published in 1991) on the battle of chess ideas, grandmaster Mihai Suba developed the concept of ?dynamic potential? in modern chess strategy. In improving your position on the board the old strategy principles often lead to conflicting conclusions. Suba takes another view on the meaning of, for example, ?bad positions? and ?quiet moves?, and uses a light touch to explain his ideas. With many entertaining and instructive examples the author explores ?the accumulation of potential? as the modern way to get the advantage. A thought-provoking and yet very practical guide.
