U.S. International Master John Watson's classic work on the English Opening is still the only comprehensive trea tment of this dependable opening, one which has always had a large following among the world 's best players. Some of the finest games of modern chess, both positional and tactical, have begun with 1 P-QB4. By virtue of its extraordinary flexibility, the English can lead to unique and original positions at an early stage of the game. Volume 2 deals with a11 variations after 1 P-QB4 N-KB3 in which Black refrains from playing ... P-K4 or ... P-QB4 early on.

Popular systems involving the move ... P-K3 are deeply researched and analysed, including the 'Queen's English', 'Nimzo-English', and Mikenas-Flohr Attack.
