Questions of Modern Chess Theory is the lost masterpiece of Soviet chess literature. It was written by a double Ukrainian Champion, and published in the Soviet Union in 1956. Russian experts say it is one of the most influential chess books of the 20th century, yet it was never published in English.

It has been edited to make it useful for the 21st century and is now accessible for the first time to an English-speaking audience.

Isaac Lipnitsky was a major player on the Soviet chess scene just after World War II, strong enough to take the scalps of Keres, Smyslov and Petrosian. He would no doubt have been a household name had he not tragically passed away at a young age in 1959.

Editorial Reviews

“Questions of Modern Chess Theory is without doubt one of the best chess books of all time.”



“The author doesn’t need many pages of tiresome exposition to make his point. He explains complicated chess theory in no time with excellent game examples and clear and logical language.”
Martin Rieger, Europa Rochade
