    Book DescriptionThe Sveshnikov Sicilian is arguably the most dynamic line in the whole of the Sicilian Defence. Black takes on certain structural weaknesses but gains active piece play as compensation, which is very much in keeping with the modern style of play. Black is not content to equalize but from the very startsets out to wrest the advantage from his opponent's hands.

    * A counter-attacking line in which Black often takes the initiative.
    * The favorite defence of many leading players, including Vladimir Kramnik.
    * Expert coverage by a talented and knowledgable Grandmaster.

    Neil McDonald is one of the young generation of British Grandmasters and has a string of international tournament victories to his credit. He is the author of several other Batsford books.
