In this second part of their detailed work on the Dragon Sicilian, the
authors present coverage, to date, of all lines other than the Rauzer, which is
dealt with in Volume One. These lines range from an unhurried 'Classical'
development of pieces to the early pawn rush f4 and e5 seen in the 'Levenfish
Variation'. Here, compared to the Rauzer, there is a great concentration of play
in the centre of the board where Black is ready to fight his opponent blow for
blow. On the other hand, if need be, Black can react to any kingside offensive
with a counterattack on the other wing, making full use of the open c-file for
his rook and the long h8-a1 diagonal for his mighty Dragon bishop.Whether
playing the White or Black side, no competitive player - at club or tournament
level - can afford to be without this book.
