Nearly 30 years have passed since the introduction of Hanon Russell's "A Chessplayer's Guide to Russian." In print again with a revised and expanded format, this edition has twice as much vocabulary in the dictionary, is completely typeset in Cyrillic and English, and for the first time, a pronunciation guide of all the popular Russian chess players is included. Now you can be sure of yourself before getting caught in a tongue twister or putting the accent in the wrong place.
The Soviet Union has consistently produced the strongest chess grandmasters in the world. After working through this guide you will be better able to read the extensive Russian chess literature which exists in books and magazines today.
