Aufter his refusal to join other Soviet grandmasters in denouncing Victor Korchnoi for his defection in 1976, Bronstein was barred from travelling to the West for 13 long years. When the barriers finally came down in the late 1980s, he eagerly used his newly-gained freedom to travel to numerous countries in Europe, delighting chess enthusiasts with his original ideas and gaining new friends of differnent nationalities.
This book gives an account of these travels, on some of wich Bronstein was accompainied by his wife Tatyana Boleslavskaya, who adds her own intriguing impressions. He includes some thirty instructively annotated games from this period, which showed that the old tiger had not yet lost his claws. Bronstein also looks back into the past, and in particular to a sectret training match played with Victor Korchnoi in 1970, the games of which have never previosly been published. Bronstein's co-author, Sergey Voronkov, is a wll-known author and editor of numerous chess books and magazines.
When this book was in the final stages of publication, we received the sad news that David Bronstein had passwed away. W hope that the book will provide a fitting tribute to the later years of this remarkable man, who had so many friends throughout the chess world.
