I sourced the position from 1960 book: "The Delights of Chess" by Assiac. Assiac was the name of Heinrich Fraenkel's long running chess column in the New Statesman. The book brings together and expands on all of his best columns, and includes such intriguing chapter titles as "Is this proper Marxism?" and "Dostoyevsky has nothing to do with it". The New Statesman is the same journal that Tony Miles wrote for.
