On the map of modern chess theory there is a 'blank spot' - The Nimzowitsch-Rubinstein Variation of the Sicilian Defence (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6) Everyone has heard of it, but no one really knows anything about it. The literature devoted to this topic is extremely scanty. Two or three articles, a few brochures, one ancient monograph (in German) - and that's all. The book of international master Grigory Bogdanovisch fills this gap. The author, a recognized expert on the Variation, has summarized and fully systemized his many years of experience in the given field. His views are subjective - but this is what makes them valuable. His conclusions are paradoxical, but they, so to speak, 'grab' the reader and do not leave him indifferent. You want to argue with him, but - and this is the main thing! - his presentation of the Variation makes you want to study it and play it.

Eduard Gufeld: "The main of the King’s Indian Defence (or more precisely, the King’s Indian Attack!) if a battle against Wight’s pawn center with pieces, which must have the timely support of pawn counter. The King’s Indian Defence is an asymmetric opening! Black’s strategy is based on disrupting the opponent’s plans, and at the same time at an early stage of the opening Black tries to implement his own plan of counterplay. For this reason the King’s Indian Defence should be studied exclusively as a transition process from opening to middlegame. Hence a large part of this book comprises games which enable this link to be traced"
