Finding a suitable defence to 1 d4 isn't an easy task, especially if you don't have endless time available to study all the latest theoretical developments. If you choose fashionable openings, it's imperative to keep pace with modern theory if you want to succeed with Black.
Those who are unwilling to become slaves to opening theory need not fear this book provides a solution.

Palliser examines in detail both the Czech Benoni and the closely related Closed Benoni with 1 d4 c5, and he also explains what to do against various Anti-Benoni options.
