This book examines pawn structures in relation to the fight for the center. Again, the author uses complete games to help the student's understanding, and the same conversational tone of explanation that he used in his previous book.
After an historical survey, he covers the Open center, Closed center, Pawn Majorities and Minority attacks and the Dynamic center. There are many fascinating games in this volume. As a chess instructor, I have found this book very useful because of the clarity with which Marovic presents his material. It is like having a greatly expanded and better organized version of the essay "Various Pawn Positions in the Center" by Alexander Kotov (in the collection of papers titled "The Art of the Middlegame" by Kotov and Keres). Those, like myself, who loved the article by Kotov will be ecstatic over this volume.
One of the most difficult things in chess is to truly understand the role and power of the pawns. The books by Marovic will greatly aid that understanding.
