Probably. His last couple of books also came out in German before English.

Is this list still up-to-date? Wink

I stumbled over a German book from Olms called

Mark Dworetski

THEORIE UND PRAXIS DER SCHACHPARTIE

can anybody confirm that this is indeed "Opening Developments" ?

--------------------

Dvoretsky's memoirs are coming out these days through Yusupov's German publishing house.

Mark Dvoretsky
„Für Freunde und Kollegen“: Band 1: Beruf: Trainer"

(For Friends & Colleagues: Vol. 1: Profession: Coach)

An excerpt on his first meetings with Tal can be found in the shop on www.jussupow.de .

Thanks a lot for the links (to Aagaard's review) and the very helpful survey by Stigma.

In fact I have five German Dvoretsky/Yusupov books from the 1990ies in my collection for a long time now. The first three were published by Beyer, the last two by Edition Olms. Although the title translations do not match perfectly to Batsford's, it seems that these are the corresponding books to the five Batsford ones.

There have been some developments since I made my correspondence table, see

http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1211369614

- The 4th volume of the Olms "School of Future Champions" series is out, as you know.

- The new, independent "Endgame Manual" and "Analytical Manual" are both published by Russell Enterprises.

- Finally, there is a new book called something like "Endgame Studies for the Practical Player" by Dvoretsky and a co-author, but I think this is only available in German (and Russian?) yet.

Lost with Dworetski/Jussupow books

I must admit that I'm totally lost with all the books Dvoretsky and Jussupow have written, rewritten, published and republished. Every work of them seems to have been published in different languages (German/English) and with several editions, partly updated editions. Maybe due to a change in their preferred publishing company (Batsford, Edition Olms), I just dont know.

For instance, I just learned from http://www.chesscafe.com/text/review693.pdf that their latest book "Secrets of Positional Play: School of Future Champions 4" is just a kind of second edition to 1996 Batsford's "Positional Play". Which seems to be the very same of my German "Positionelles Schach" (well, here is title translation is helpful and quite obvious).

Perhaps some famous presentations of say Kosikov or Kramnik even appeared in more books than other's?!

Is there a (possibly wallpaper-sized) graph available anywhere to show which book is derived from, related to, or directly translated from which other book? I'm familiar with e.g. UML design methods or entity relationship diagrams jobwise. So I would not mind a carpet size diagram to show how all these books are related to each other...  Roll Eyes

Thanks.
