Is that in the Andrew Greet book?.


It is a book unto itself, by another Andrew (Soltis). 

Greet's SO Accelerated book has been at the top of my list for some time, but I was looking for something more general because the structure arises from the English opening too which has been part of my chess for years now although I am beginning to feel the need to freshen it up.  Certainly Marin's English series would give good lines to play, but I think I need a positional primer before tackling it.  I am working through Aagaard's Attacking Manual and I appreciate his writing, so perhaps I will pick up one of Aagaard's books on positional play.  I think it is my weakest spot aside from the tendency to only think a move ahead. 

I think they could make some money reprinting Pawn Structure Chess.  I even tried to figure out how to contact the publisher, but I only got so far as to figure out the publisher is owned by Random House.

For a 1600 looking for an introduction to the Maroczy (and not just of the sort that can arise in the Accelerated Dragon), I would be inclined to recommend the relevant section of "Pawn Structure Chess."  It is somewhat annoying that that book appears to be out of print now, though.

I was wondering what the best book/webpage/material is for getting acquainted with this structure and possibly the typical ideas and plans.  Suggestions?
