    Славянская защита - самый популярный закрытый дебют наших дней, входящий в репертуар подавляющего большинства гроссмейстеров высокого класса. Шахматист-практик, играющий 1.d4, сталкивается с этим дебютом практически в каждом турнире, черными же применять его можно вообще чуть ли не в каждой второй партии. В течение многих лет я играл самые разные разветвления этого дебюта за оба цвета, анализировал его как самостоятельно, так и в содружестве со многими известными гроссмейстерами. Сейчас я решил дать возможность всем желающим заглянуть в гроссмейстерскую лабораторию и познакомиться с моим профессиональным отношением к тем или иным дебютным разветвлениям. Вторая часть работы включает в себя все системы, не вошедшие в первую. Это популярный вариант Алапина 3.Kf3 Kf6 4.Kc3 dxc4, а также системы, берущие начало после 4...e6. Не забыты такие возможности как 5.g3 и 5.Фb3, а после 5.e3 Kbd7 разбираются главным образом меранский (6.Сd3 dxc4 7.Сxc4 b5) и антимеранский (6.Фc2 Сd6) варианты. Еще одну солидную часть книги занимает продолжение 5.Bg5, делящееся в свою очередь на несколько крупных самостоятельных разделов. Это московский (5...h6 6.Сxf6) и антимосковский (5...h6 6.Сh4) варианты, а также система Ботвинника 5...dxc4. Возможность объединить такое количество систем в одной книге (ее можно было бы сделать пятитомником) появилась благодаря тому, что я старался дерево устаревших с моей точки зрения линий сократить до умеренного количества, оставляя лишь то, что действительно полезно знать. В дебютных книгах часто приводятся второсортные продолжения, после которых следует большое количество ссылок на сыгранные таким образом партии. В итоге книга раздувается, а суть оказывается размыта. Я в подобных случаях кратко отмечал, почему данная конкретная линия не заслуживает подробного рассмотрения. Такой подход позволил «объять необъятное» не только без потери качества, но наоборот — под рукой всегда именно то, что необходимо, а найти нужную рекомендацию гораздо проще. Текстовые пояснения к вариантам и ключевым позициям даны не везде, а лишь в тех случаях, где мне это показалось важным и где выводы не слишком очевидны. В остальном использовалась общепринятая символьная система оценок. Книга содержит очень большое количество новинок с прилагающимися анализами, проделанными не менее тщательно, чем в первой части.

      The winners of the XII USSR Championship were invited to participate in the 1941 match tournament: I. Bondarevsky, A. Lilienthal, V. Smyslov, P. Keres, I. Boleslavsky and M. Botvinnik. After the participants of the match tournament became known, the tournament program was also determined. Everyone had to play four games with each other — in fact, a small match. Thus, the match tournament consisted of four rounds. Mikhail Moiseevich said that this book is the best thing he has done in the field of chess analysis. Meanwhile, it was created in the most difficult conditions: during the war, during the evacuation. The chess player's family of 6 people lived in the room, and every day, coming home from work, he worked on a table made up of suitcases, believing that in this way he retains his analytical power for future achievements. M.M. often said that real science according to "Parkinson's Law" is done in a barn, and as soon as it appears The doorman in livery at the front door, science ends. Apparently, this also applies to literary and chess work. Another episode related to the book dates back to 1970. A.A.Bykhovsky (at that time the senior coach of the USSR youth national team) led Alexander Belyavsky to Botvinnik. Then M. M. said that Belyavsky was shown to him too late. What do you mean it's late, you asked him again? "17 years is too late, the chess player has already been formed," Mikhail Moiseevich replied. The young man liked it, and Botvinnik gave him this book for careful study. A few months later, she was returned with the words: "I wanted to find at least one error in the analysis, but I didn't find it!"

    One of the most successful and legendary books in history, making its author the highest paid writer of his time! The secret of such phenomenal success lies in a peculiar fusion of genres: taking all four Gospels of the New Testament as a basis, the author simultaneously created both a scientific study and an artistic reconstruction of the life of Jesus Christ. As a great authority on sources and languages, Ernest Renan visited the places where the action of this great story unfolded, and as a former seminarian, he clearly “knew better than anyone what he was saying.” In a fascinating artistic form accessible to the widest range of readers, the outstanding French writer and historian of Christianity reveals the inner world of Christ, introduces the circle of his followers and enemies, and also depicts the historical conditions of life in ancient Judea.
