THE ART OF SHOGI written by Tony Hosking

The first comprehensive guide to Japanese chess in English for complete beginner and advanced (dan) player.

288 pages with 725 diagrams

The Art Of Shogi includes:
An account of professional shogi in Japan (20 million Japanese can play!).
In-depth guide to strategy and openings (plus handicap games).
108 annotated professional game references, including the first 8 title games outside Japan.
Comparison and brief history of shogi and Western chess - which share the objective of checkmate, and some similar movement of pieces (kings, rooks, bishops, knights, pawns).
Captured shogi pieces change sides and can re-enter play, making nearly every game exciting and decisive!
