This greatly enlarged second edition chronicles the second half of the life of Polish grandmaster Akiva Rubinstein (1921-1961). Dozens of archival photographs and approximately 40% more material finish off this splendid work, completing the journey begun in volume 1, Uncrowned King. It has been said that Rubinstein was the strongest player never to get an opportunity to play for the World Chess Championship.

International Masters Minev and Donaldson are two of the most respected chess authors and theoreticians today. Minev was thrice champion of Bulgaria, a columnist for Inside Chess for ten years, and a key contributor to the Encyclopedia of Chess Endings. Donaldson, who has earned 2 GM norms at the time of this writing, captained the US National team nine times, and is the Director of the prestigous Mechanics' Institute in San Francisco.
