21st Century Dictionary of Basic Joseki
BGJ 173 Autumn 2015, Reviewer: Roger Huyshe
by Takao Shinji
This is a 2010 update of the respected Ishida’s Dictionary of Basic Joseki (3 volumes).
There are two substantial volumes of nearly 300 pages each, the first of which addresses 3-4 point openings and the second deals with others. The book gives much more space than earlier ones to 4-4 point joseki in line with the increased frequency in the modern game. The books are well laid out with both a textual and a pictorial index.
The explanations are clear enough to be accessible to anyone from say 10kyu or stronger who wants a solid reference work.
