Part one looks at the domestic scene, while part two goes overseas. The story starts in the mid-nineteenth century and goes all the way to the 1990s. It takes advantage of the many fine Australian analysts and writers, not least of whom is Cecil Purdy, to tell the tale in their words.The book has been expensively produced and includes forty-six photographs.One review reads:“ Cathy Chua (b. Depasquale in Adelaide, 1959) represented Australia twice in Olympiads before quitting competitive chess in favour of Bridge. As repayment of her debt, Cathy has written an excellent book which takes a look at “the top of across the board chess in Australia”.She has blended the old with the new to produce a compelling and sensitive account of Australian chess history which is essential reading for all those that follow chess in this country.” ACE News 16 May 1998 p.3.
