4 Qc2 (or the Classical Variation, as it's commonly known) represents one of White's main choices against the ever-reliable Nimzo-Indian Defense. Its advocates include world-class players such as Garry Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik. White's idea in this line is to avoid the dreaded 'double pawn complex' which is so prevalent in other Nimzo variations. In this book Bogdan Lalic explains the ideas and strategies for both white and black players. All the major variations are covered and Lalic updates the theory of these ever-developing lines.
