Sep 15, 2010 Brian R. Mcdonald marked it as books-with-go-references
Some day I will attempt a review of this very odd book. It is a treatise on "chessology", which the author treats as a complex science of the various branches of the chess family, with many seemingly random diversions on philosophy, history, theories of racial characteristics, and whatever quirks of Victorian era thought crossed Mr. Cho's mind. The "Japanese chess" of the title is, of course, shogi, but there are six pages on go.
