In this section we present a sneak preview from The Modern French by Dejan Antic and Branimir Maksimovic. Our reviewer Glenn Flear notices a growing influence of subtitles in books like Ivan Sokolov's The Strategic Nimzo-Indian, Larry Kaufman's The Kaufman Repertoire for Black & White, Alexander Delchev's The Modern Reti and Ruslan Scherbakov's the triangle system. Of course the insides of these books are even more important, and Flear is an expert in pointing out the highlights!

Essential Chess Sacrifices
A Guide to the Sacrifices that are most Fundamental to Understanding Chess>Sacrifices are an essential part of chess. Those who never consider sacrificing will miss countless opportunities and find that promising positions repeatedly slip away. Players who do not appreciate their opponents' sacrificial possibilities will be unable to see danger signs, and find themselves on the wrong end of too many king-hunts. Rather than merely cataloguing the various possibilities and providing examples, LeMoir discusses the possible follow-ups to the sacrifices, the defensive options against them, and the positional factors that might suggest whether the sacrifice will be sound or unsound.
