♥ Book Title : The Fascinating Réti Gambit
☯ Full Synopsis : "Are you one of those e4-players who absolutely hate to face the French Defence? And when it occurs, do you get the feeling that black has all the fun, whether he's pressuring your d-pawn, breaking down your pawn centre, rounding up your a-pawn or boring you to tears with the Rubinstein? - Then the Reti Gambit may be the solution for you too After having written two popular books on the King's Gambit for white (The King's Gambit for the Creative Aggressor in 1998 and The Fascinating King's Gambit in 2004/5) Thomas Johansson devotes his third chess opening book to a little known gambit that definitely spices up the French Defence I can't guarantee that white always gets an advantage in the RG - after all, even the theoretical main lines after 2.d4 tend to end up equal after about 20 moves - but the positions that arise are usually so interesting and fun that once you've learned how to play it, I think you will soon be looking forward to your next encounter with the French Defence"Article| Thomas Johansson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Gambit
☯ Full Synopsis : "The theft of strategic and nuclear weapons from a GRU arsenal in the Ukraine gets prompt and full attention at the highest levels of the U.S. and Russian governments. But their respective intelligence communities are having considerable difficulty identifying the perpetrators, much less accurately assessing their motivation and intent. Nations known to be seeking nuclear weapons capability top the list of suspects, together with likely sub-national groups of terrorists and fanatics, and perhaps even the GRU itself. A Russian Admiral, hero of the former Soviet Union, and his KGB friend and colleague turn up unexpectedly in the Caribbean. A Vieques island innkeeper called "The Frenchman," a stunningly beautiful Puerto Rican doctor, a Chinese majordomo, a captivating San Juan socialite, a British artist, and an outspoken priest all appear to be enmeshed in the resulting web of subterfuge. Who has the weapons? And why? Who will be targeted? And when? The nuclear theft is the first move in what becomes an international chess game of intrigue, espionage and deception against the most unlikely opposition."Article| Antoinette Falquier| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Pierce Gambit, Chess Papers and Problems (Classic Reprint)
☯ Full Synopsis : "Excerpt from Pierce Gambit, Chess Papers and Problems HE following pages are, _for the most part, the result of the Authors' devotion of their leisure hours to Chess during the past ten years. During that time the development of the game, both in the analysis of the Openings and in the Problem Art, has been most marked. At first it was intended to supple ment the modern English text books on Chess analysis with the results of recent discoveries, as the books last published were greatly wanting in this respect, and had by no means kept pace with the requirements of the day; this part of the proposed task is, however, at last, happily, in such competent hands, that the scope of these investigations has been limited in this branch of Chess to the full discussion of the new Gambit (a variation of the Vienna Game) - the result of°the last two years incessant study. It is hoped that this part of the book will be found both new and interesting: the attack and defence being sufficiently even to give, on the whole, about equal chances to each side. The other Chess papers have been carefully revised and in some cases entirely refwritten. The problems have all been composed since the Autho'rs' last published collection, and are selected out of a large number so as to preserve in pcrmament form only the best. Those byzw. Timbrell Pierce are distinguished from those by J. Pierce by being numbered with Roman numerals. It is believed that they are all sound, and the Authors take this opportunity of cordially 'thanking Messrs. Bolus, Robins and Pilleau for having carefully examined most of the positions.

♥ Book Title : Abbott's Gambit
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book provides a truly comprehensive analysis of the 2013 federal election in Australia, which brought the conservative Abbott government to power, consigned the fractious Labor Party to the Opposition benches and ended the ‘hung parliament’ experiment of 2010–13 in which the Greens and three independents lent their support to form a minority Labor government. It charts the dynamics of this significant election and the twists and turns of the campaign itself against a backdrop of a very tumultuous period in Australian politics. Like the earlier federal election of 2010, the election of 2013 was an exercise in bipolar adversarial politics and was bitterly fought by the main protagonists. It was also characterised (again) by leadership changes on Labor’s side as well as the entry of new political parties anxious to deny the major parties a clear mandate. Moreover, the 2013 election continued the trend whereby an increasing proportion of the electorate has chosen not to vote for one of the main two political parties. While the 2013 election delivered a clear victory to the Coalition in the Lower House, it simultaneously produced a much more mixed outcome in the Senate, where the Greens managed to record their largest ever representation and a new party, the Palmer United Party, initially secured three Senate positions at its first attempt (together with the election of Clive Palmer to a Queensland seat in the House of Representatives). With minor and micro parties also winning Senate seats amounting to a total of 18 Senators on the cross-benches, the Abbott government’s ability to govern and pass legislation was placed in some doubt. The 2013 election result suggested that far from ending the preceding tumultuous period of Australian politics, it merely served to prolong this era indefinitely. The 2013 campaign was one of the longest on record, arguably commencing when the besieged Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced the date for the election in late January 2013 – then over seven months away. This unconventional tactic overshadowed the election from that date onwards – providing a definite timeline for Labor infighting, influencing the largely negative tactics of the Opposition, and encouraging new parties to proliferate to contest the election. This volume traces these formative influences on the campaign dynamics and explains the electoral outcome that occurred (including the 2014 re-election for the Western Australian Senate seats ordered by the High Court). Abbott’s Gambit includes insightful contributions from academic experts, campaign directors and electoral watchers, political advisers and professional psephologists. Contributors utilise a wide range of sources and approaches, including the Australian Election Survey, to provide a detailed analysis of this important federal election."Article| Carol Johnson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Pawn's Gambit
☯ Full Synopsis : "This is an enthralling political thriller. Starting from one seemingly inconsequential event, it escalates to embrace contemporary political events on an epic scale. Though a work of fiction, the author's detailed research into this world, the institutions and the places involved, give a startling authenticity to the tale which emerges. Kate Kimball, a publisher, returns from a business trip in California to find that her partner, Paul Emmerson, an Engineering Professor at Oxford University has mysteriously disappeared. The police, at first helpful, become increasingly and inexplicably obstructive; until Kate realises that if she is to discover what really happened, she must carry out her own investigation. With only a minor clue to go on the task at first seems insurmountable. As she struggles to unravel what happened to Paul, Kate's life descends into a tangle of deceptions. She is increasingly sucked into a murky terrorist event of thirty years before; and then into the most lethal political conspiracy of modern times. Unwittingly, as she seeks to establish Paul's fate, she becomes a pawn in the biggest international crisis since the ending of the Cold War; and her life now endangered, she finds herself confronting the hidden powers of the State. With little room for manoeuvre, she responds with a highly dangerous ploy, a daring plan that represents her only chance of survival - a pawn's gambit which will determine the course of world history."Article| Harry Armstrong| Statement ..."
