Gone are the days when the Caro-Kann was adopted only with a view to playing for a draw. The 1980s saw a great resurgence of interest in the defence at all levels, and, while the Caro-Kann justly retained its reputation as Black's most solid response to 1 e4, the development of new ideas in both attack and defence has created a thoroughly modern and dynamic opening system suitable for players of all temperaments. This revised and updated second edition provides a comprehensive review of current theory and, with over 60 complete games, illustrates the practical application of the key tactical and strategical ideas.
