There is also a Chessbase DVD from 2020 "How to slay the Sicilian"

However in Correspondence Chess white gains very little if anything at all these days in h5 system.

Khalifman devoted a book to the English Attack vs. the Najdorf in 2012:
Opening for White According to Anand vol 14.

Amazon has two new copies for about $30.

First, I think I will try to absorb the material available on ChessPublishing!

Thanks!

Somehow I totally missed that book. His Sicilian repertoire suits me in several variations. Most surprising to me is 6f3 against the Classical, which I have only seen from the black side.

Shaw's quality chess book from 2018 covers this as his main line against the Nardojf. It's developed a huge amount of theory these days of course.

The last book I saw from the white perspective covering the English Attack is Dismantling the Sicilian by Jesus de la Villa, 2009. Does anyone know of anything newer?

I have been playing 6f3 with mixed results in speed play. I haven't been able to fault the opening, so much as my own play. For starters, it goes against the grain to play on the queen side, as one should sometimes do, when playing white in the Sicilian. I realize that white generally proceeds with 6Be3.

I consider the Najdorf to be the "main line" (Sveshnikov second) of the Sicilian. I still think there is some life in the English Attack, but it seems to be totally out of fashion as far as published works go.
