Against the Grain - August 17, 2004

Cold War, Chess War. It was about chess -- and so much more. Cold War politics, iconoclastic beliefs, negotiating brinksmanship, fiery tempers: all of this permeated the 1972 world championship match between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky in Iceland. David Edmonds and John Eidinow have written an investigative account of the turbulent showdown in Reykjavik.
