An ideal book for any chess player with a strategic frame of mind who wishes to carve out an openings repertoire based on 1d4! The author gives a number of illustrative games in all key lines which show how White can maintain control against any Black defence. If you want to stay in charge in the opening without taking risks this is the book for you! Originally published as An Opening Repertoire for White in 1984. The companion volume is Two Opening Repertoires for White: Volume 2: Aggressive plans for White, which continues with key lines from volume 1, adding extra analysis and comment, as well as introducing some entirely new variations, which will be to the taste of the attacking player.
