Book Previews and Reviews
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!
