Idle Passion
Author: Alexander Cockburn
Through a strange and fascinating history of chess, "Idle Passion" explores the realities of play, the workings of disinterested intellects, an object lesson in the noble uses of leisure. Alexander Cockburn shows in this portrait of the "Royal Game" that chess could be regarded as a mirror image of all man's obsessions and desires.
