    Old School Soviet Chess Book from the 's by Alexander Kotov for some reason the voice of Ivan and Natasha from Rocky and Bull Winkle comes to mind when I read this book. Instructional but don't pay any attention to the pro Soviet propaganda that was added to it!4/5(3).   After the fall of the Soviet Union, this system was shaken (Pioneers Palaces no longer exist, for example), but a strong cultural connection and extensive after-school programs still ensures that Russia has the most grandmasters in the world, by far. The best book on this topic (and the one I've cited above) is: Soltis, Andy. Soviet Chess,

Hi all. My brother has asked for a book about Soviet Chess as a gift for this holiday season. I’m unsure if he means the history of Chess in the Soviet region, or if he wants a book about Soviet chess strategy. At first I was thinking the infamous Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual, but I.

Mark Taimanov, who had some problems with Soviet authority after his loss to Fischer, wrote a book "I was Fischer's victim" (I didn't find translation on any language, russian name of this book is "Я был жертвой Фишера").
