9780786461455: Arthur Kaufmann: A Chess Biography, 1872-1938

This biography explores the life and chess career of Arthur Kaufmann, an early 20th century Romanian-born grandmaster-level player. A contemporary of luminaries such as Capablanca, Reti, Schlechter, Spielmann, and Tartakower, Kaufmann remained an enigma despite his high level play.

Through an analysis of primary sources, including correspondence, diaries and other archival material, Kaufmann's chess career is reconstructed in detail. His tournament and match play games from the early 1890s to the 1910s are explored, as are his little known matches against some of the top players of his time and his participation in the Trebitsch memorials in wartime Vienna.

The book also offers an unprecedented account of Kaufmann's close relationship with Arthur Schnitzler, the famed Austrian dramatist, whose diary offers important clues to Kaufmann's life and work as a philosopher. There is a collection of 71 Kaufmann games with detailed annotations and diagrams.

About the Author:

Olimpiu G. Urcan is a Singapore-based chess history writer. In addition to a monthly column for ChessCafe.com, he contributes regularly to Edward Winter's Chess Notes and is the author of several chess biographies published by McFarland.

Peter Michael Braunwarth is a scholar and professor in Vienna, Austria.

Review:

"Having known little more than his name prior to reading this book, I am now acquainted with a flawed character of considerable intellect who experienced monumental difficulty coming to terms with events around him. This biography, comprising chess history, social and economic history and political history is a fitting tribute to his life." --YorkshireChess website, October 2015

"Excellent research." --Dale Brandreth, Caissa Editions

"Lovely produced book.... One of those wonderful written McFarland chess books." --John Elburg (Chessbooks.nl)
