Journalist, scholar, and chess enthusiast Daniel Johnson is our guide to one of history's most remarkable periods, when chess matches were front-page news and captured the world's imagination. The Cold War played out in many areas: geopolitical alliances, military coalitions, espionage, the arms race, proxy wars--and chess. An essential pastime of Russian intellectuals and revolutionaries, later adopted by the Communists as a symbol of Soviet power, chess was inextricably linked to the rise and fall of the "evil empire." This narrative recounts the singular part the Immortal Game played in the Cold War, from chess's role in the Russian Revolution, to the 1945 radio match when the Soviets crushed the Americans, to the epic contest between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky in 1972 at the height of détente, when Kissinger told Fischer to "go over there and beat the Russians," to the collapse of the Soviet Union itself.--From publisher description.… (més)

An interesting history of chess between USSR and the West. The Karpov/Kortchnoi match description was particularly interesting. Overall enjoyable, though at times the author was a bit heavy-handed in his anti-communist and -Soviet agenda. ( )

Picked this book up quite by chance and I am so glad I did. Fascinating view of 20th Century history, and the Cold War in particular. ( )
