    First Steps - The Modern
    Catalog Code: B0455EM

    The Modern Defense is an important opening that can be played by Black against absolutely any White opening system. It is an ambitious, counterattacking weapon, favored by dynamic players. White is initially allowed to occupy the centre but Black plans to undermine this structure in the middle game with well-timed blows from the pieces and pawns. If Black gets it right then the white centre can be dramatically swept away. However, when it goes wrong, Black can be overrun.

    Catalog Code: SWB0165EM

    The Modern Defence leads to sharp and dynamic positions from the very first few moves. Black concedes space in the center with a view to launching a counterattack based on his powerful bishop fianchetto. As leading grandmasters such as Alexei Shirov, Mikhail Gurevich and Jon Speelman himself have shown on numerous occasions, when it works, the Modern Defence is truly a spectacular weapon. This book will show you how to put it to use in your own games.
