Structure Chess (McKay Chess Library)
by GM Andrew Soltis
In the game of chess, pawns are usually considered weak because of
their limited range of movement. Understanding how pawns affect strategy
is the subject of this important book. Here, players learn characteristic
pawn structure; how to recognize strengths and weaknesses of pawn chains;
when to exchange pawns in the center--and when not to; how to create and
exploit pawn "holes", and much more.

and knights, pawns and bishops, pawns and rooks, as well as treatment of
good and bad bishops, knights vs bishops, etc. Great illustrative game
excerpts with just the subject pieces and also in combination with other

excellent review of the tactics occassioned by isolated and hanging pawn
structure, for example the d5 push the f7 sac etc. Perhaps better than
Pachman's or Euwe's work on same subject.
