Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0713489782, Paperback)

Though the Ruy Lopez is one of the oldest openings in chess, it offers a host of exciting new variations just discovered in recent years; and though a favorite of champions such as Kasparov and Anand, it has a tactical clarity that makes it ideal for beginners. Australian champion Gary Lane provides a comprehensive course on the opening: the tricks and traps for both Black and White, and the full range of variations, attacking and positional--all explained and illustrated with the help of a stellar selection of model games. A must-have for all players seeking to improve their opening play.
