Why are certain openings fashionable and why do others vanish? Is this based on an objective evaluation or on mere whim? How were Openlugs principles first elaborated and by whom? And are the experts on openings always right? These questions and many others are answered by grandmaster Ray Keene in this survey which comrnences with the early days of chess science and finishes with the sophisticated and rigorous openings investigations, preparation and techniques conducted by the most successful and deadly openings practitioner of a11 time - Garry Kasparov. Raymond Keene is a British Chess Champion, and the first British Player to achieve a FIDE (World Chess Federation) Grandrnaster norm. He was awarded the üBE for services to chess in 1985. He is Chess Correspondent of The Times, The Sunday Times, The Spectator, and Tne International Herald Tribune. He is a prolific author of chess books, several of which are classics of the genre. He has organised three World Chess Championships.
