There's really not much from the black side in way of coverage, to be honest. I've always kept on the look-out, with no luck.

ECO, and the other generalized sources give it much more treatment than repertoire books/videos for black, because black generally opts for the Hedgehog in anything repertoire related, due largely to the theoretical reputation.

OFWAK 2 (1st, 2nd edition) is, of course, from the white side, but is the most extensive coverage of the Anglo-QID I've run into, where black has no desire to play an early ...c5, or white to play an early d4.

1. Nf3 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g3 b6 4. Bg2 Bb7 5. 0-0 Be7 6. Nc3 0-0 7. Re1 d5 8. cxd5 exd5/Nxd5 are the two main lines, neither of which have a great theoretical reputation compared to 1. Nf3 Nf6 2. c4 b6 3. g3 Bb7 4. Bg2 c5 5. 0-0 e6 6. Nc3 Be7.

The question is a bit amorphous ... e.g., do you mean to include 5. 0-0 Be7 6. Nc3 0-0 7. Re1 d5 8. cd ed 9. d4?  Do you mean to exclude any "hedgehoggish" lines that can ensue after an early b3 (Black can instead e.g. play ...d5 and ...Nbd7)?

1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 b6 4.Bg2 Bb7,
where White is not going to play d4 (that would be a Queen's Indian Defense)
while Black also refrains from playing a preventive c5 (not striving for a Hedgehog but allowing the QID).

I am looking for study material from Black's perspective.
Please help.
