Synopsis

Synopsis

This compact story chronicles how chess diffused throughout the world, of when and why the changes in structure were made, and of what is known about its origins; and an account, of necessity largely guesswork, of how chess was born. The book also includes a polyglot—a lexicon of chess terms in the forty major languages of this one world. And for the skeptical reader or interested scholar, a working bibliography of English language references.
Henry A. Davidson
