Do you have the book "The Complete Sveshnikov Sicilian" by Yuri Yakovich?  On page 189 he writes about 15...b4! (His exclam)  He discusses it pretty thoroughly for a off-line of a 15th move.  If you want his analysis I can give it.

This move came as a shocker OTB and I certainly panicked. 

After checking with some sources, it appears 15 ... b4! is black's best, but I'm not sure why.  Can anyone enlighten me?

Any coverage of this move would be nice.
