    Book DescriptionThe Sicilian Defence features many dramatic variations, but for sheer violence, few can equal the Sveshnikov. Black aims for maximum piece activity at the cost of a shattered pawn structure.

    Black's aim is to seize the initiative, regardless of the cost. If he is successful, then the pawns will look after themselves. On the other hand, white is looking to use black's weaknesses as spring-boards for a ferocious attack of his own. Even Sveshnikov endings are dynamic and imbalanced. No wonder it has been a favorite of ambitious players for many years.

    * Strategic guidance from two Sveshnikov experts.
    * Brilliant games by Kramnik, Shirov, Nunn and Kasparov
    * Complete illustrative games highlights the key idea.

    Valery Neverov is a leading Ukranian grandmaster. He won the USSR Youth Championship on two occasions, and has played the Sveshnikov Sicilian regularly throughout his career.
