Vera Menchik biography forthcoming from McFarland.

Vera Menchik: A Biography of the First Women’s World Chess Champion, with 350 Complete Games by Robert B. Tanner is scheduled for release this fall/ winter from McFarland.

"Not only was Vera Menchik the first woman in the history of chess to compete on an equal basis with the top male players, she absolutely dominated women’s chess during the last 17 years of her life. Hers was a fascinating career as an independent professional in an era where this was rare for women in any endeavor."
