Volume 3: The Nimzo-Indian and Other Defences
The final volume consists of five parts:
The first part analyses some seldom played moves for Black.
The second part of the book is devoted to the Dutch Defence.
The third part deals with the different defences for Black after 1.d4, Nf6; 2.c4, besides 2...c5; and 2...e6.
The fourth part analyses the Benoni Defence and the Volga Gambit.
Finally, the fifth part of the book, deals with Black's most reliable defence - the Nimzo-Indian Defence.
This volume, just like in the previous two, emphasizes on reliability and rationality in the choice of systems for White. For example, against the Dutch Defence the author prefers the move 2.Nc3, with which White reduces Black's possibilities considerably. Against the Nimzo-Indian Defence he recommends the Rubinstein System - 4.e3, followed by Nge2, in which White's first task is to avoid compromising his pawn-structure.
