About the author (as in 1974)
Bozidar M. Kazic is a prominent Yugoslav chess official, an international chess referee, member of the FIDE Bureau and a journalist. He is the Secretary-General of the Yugoslav Chess Federation, and as of 1960 a permanent delegate to FIDE. He took part in the first Yugoslav Chess Championship in 1945. He was the winner of the 1954 Yugoslav Correspondence Championship. He was the head referee at the match between the USSR and the World in Belgrade, 1970; the Fischer-Taimanov match in Vancouver, 1971; and many other competitions.
He has written several books and publications on chess : A Chess Handbook, a book in conjunction with M. Yudovich on matches between the USSR and Yugoslavia, as well as a book on the Candidates' Matches of 1968. As a journalist for the Yugoslav news agency Tanjug, he has written many prominent chess commentaries and interviews which were given wide coverage in all Yugoslav papers. He was this agency's on-the-spot reporter at the Fischer-Spassky match in Reykjavik. Tanjug was the first news agency in the world to announce that Fischer had become the new world champion. Its reporter was the first to call in that Spassky had resigned the 21st game of the match.
This is an old and rare chess book of mine that I have scanned to share with you. Its true till 1973 and may be out of print by now.
