      Chess Movies 2
      The Means and Ends
      Catalog Code: B0046RE

      "Chess Movies" represents a new idea in the Pandolfini Chess Library series. It offers instructional material with every single move diagrammed and explained. Thus a chessboard and pieces are not needed to follow through. This makes it possible to rely solely on the book itself, as one would with a text on tactics and problems, without having to set up the positions. It's almost as if one is sitting in a movie theater, watching the film roll by, with the narrative carried along by subtitles.

      Sicilian Attacks
      Powerful Charges & Topical Tactics
      Catalog Code: B0093NIC

      Against most Sicilian variations, White's sharpest and often best weapon is queenside castling, a strategy that frequently leads to spectacular fireworks.

Until this book.In Sicilian Attacks, Grandmaster Yuri Yakovich, who has more than thirty years of experience with complex Sicilian systems, analyses the Najdorf, the Scheveningen, the Dragon, the Taimanov and the Richter-Rauzer Variations.
