The international team that has in the last six years restored the legendary Chess Informant to its former glory, and more recently revamped the 135–year–old British Chess Magazine, has now been encouraged to celebrate the resurgence of US chess with the help of some of the finest American authors and editors.

Naturally, the success of the USA team at the Chess Olympiad comes under the spotlight in our first issue, as does Jeffery Xiong’s capture of the world junior title. There is also an in-depth preview of the forthcoming world championship match between Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin, to be staged in New York during November. Nevertheless, readers might be surprised at the number of contributed articles by writers from foreign lands. But here the ACM is only mirroring how dynamic and how global the chess scene is today.
