    SHOPWORN - Doubled Pawns
    A Practical Guide
    Catalog Code: SWB0107RE

    There isn’t a chessplayer who hasn’t struggled with doubled pawns. Are they strong because they oversee and surveil important squares or reinforce defensive ramparts? Are they weak, prone to being collected by our opponent in the endgame – or sooner? In the first work devoted exclusively to this topic, the author examines the various pawn structures in which doubled pawns appear.

    What's White Advantage Anyways?
    Catalog Code: SWB0178NIC

    Many chess players act intimidated and overly cautious when they have the Black pieces.

Adorjan shows that White’s advantage is far from obvious and that winning with Black starts with having the right attitude.This book will convince both club players and professionals that there is no reason to be afraid when playing Black.

    SHOPWORN - Essays In American Chess History
    Catalog Code: SWB0030CA

    Essays in American Chess History has been a joy to create. Unlike larger, book length works, the essays here are self-contained, small or at least smaller units, each devoted to a different facet of the game that fascinates, infuriates, and forever will remain mysterious to us all, regardless of the many advancements made in modern technology. The essays may be read individually as well as collectively, and offer the reader glimpses into byways of the past long neglected. They record as well, at least for me, a progression in my thinking about chess, history, and their interrelationship.
