The powerful Catalan : a complete repertoire for white by Viorel Bologan( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Catalan is a solid yet flexible chess opening system that is popular on all levels.

Alekhine's find was a great idea in the days of the fourth World Champion and it still is. In fact, its recent revival has opened up a new chapter in chess opening theory.
