|Mar-09-05|| ||PaulKeres: Is this the Richard Eales that wrote the chess book about the History of Chess, and is a History lecturer at Kent University? |
|Mar-09-05|| ||PaulKeres: The book he wrote, I believe, is...
<Chess: the history of a game, Hardinge Simpole, 2002 (replaces earlier edition, Batsford, 1985).>
|Mar-09-05|| ||ray keene: yes-he has now retired-his other main book is the history of cambrdige chess |
|Mar-09-05|| ||PaulKeres: Thanks Ray for clearing that up.
I'm actually a PhD student at the University of Kent at the moment, but in Maths and not history. So he has retired as a history lecturer? He actually goes to the same chess club as me, and I have had the honour to play (and get soundly beaten by) him a few times. However, he never comes to the chess club as such, but only to graded games. However I did notice, he has not been playing in even the graded games so much recently.
|Mar-29-09|| ||ray keene: richard eales is in my opinion the worlds leading chess historian based both on his professional academic qualifications and the research for his history of chess which remains the gold standard for ches history- unrivalled as a global sweep through the intellectual and social history of the game-richard came 2nd= i believe in the 1970 british championship, he has a fide master master title, has represented england in international matches, can count alexander beiavsky as a victim and will i hope soon contribute further material to this site.|

Mock on, mock on; 'tis all in vain!
You throw the sand against the wind,
And the wind blows it back again.
|Nov-26-14|| ||MissScarlett: First, Hartston (Gogglebox), then Pein (The Apprentice), now Eales, billed as a mediaeval historian, turns up on <Walking Through History> riffing on King John and the Magna Carta.|
