This historic tournament pitted the proven ability of the experienced superstars against the sparkling ambition of the most exciting young grandmasters. In the prime of their careers were former World Champion Tigran Petrosian, the legendary Paul Keres, the great fighter Bent Larsen, the strong and solid Lajos Portisch, the vastly experienced Svetozar Gligoric, the dynamic Vlastimil Hort, the imperturbable Larry Evans. Battling for their niches among the championship hopeful Anatoly Karpov, the controversial Henrique Mecking, the ambitious Walter Browne, the original and scrappy Duncan Suttles, and the hard-fighting Julio Kaplan.

The exciting games produced by this powerful group, fighting for the highest cash prizes in many years, have been explained at every stage by the players themselves, each of whom has selected his best or most interesting games to annotate exclusively for this book. In addition, Grandmaster Bent Larsen has chosen 31 games for analysis in his bright, warm style. Other interesting battles have been annotated by International Master David Levy, a well-known chess writer and authority on the openings. 

This book includes all 120 games, numerous diagrams, photos, crosstables, indices, etc., plus a fascinating behind the scenes essay by Tournament Coordinator George Koltanowski, and a warm personal look at the players just being themselves by Sherry Rittenhouse.
