Meijin's Retirement Game

Meijin's Retirement Game Sample PDF
In this book John Fairbairn provides a very thorough commentary on the famous retirement game of Honinbo Shusai with Kitani Minoru as well as his usual thorough discussion of the historical and cultural context. He also analyzes the well-known novel The Master of Go by Kawabata Yasunari from the point of view of a go player, which will probably lead you to reread the novel. As usual, the vast majority of the material Fairbairn provides is not otherwise available in English. 142 pages.
