"Dear Chess Friend,
Sergey Kasparov is a prolific chess author. Het has published a few titles with New In Chess and now has two new books again: one for Everyman Chess and one for Russell Enterprises.

His first book gives you an opening choice for Black. Hedgehog structures arise when the black c-pawn is exchanged early on for the white d-pawn (as in the Sicilian Defence). White then adopts a formation with pawns on c4 and e4 and Black curls up in a Hedgehog formation with pawns on a6, b6, d6 and e6.
This can happen in the Sicilian Defence, the English Opening and the Queen’s Indian Defence. Play is usually highly intricate with White hoping to exploit the natural space advantage while Black remains solid and looks to break out of his or her carapace with the classical thrusts ...b7-b5 and ...d7-d5.
His second book covers doubled pawns. Are they strong because they oversee and surveil important squares or reinforce defensive ramparts? Are they weak, prone to being collected by our opponent in the endgame – or sooner? The easy answer is that it depends on the position. But are there principles that may be applied to help evaluate positions with doubled pawns? “Yes!” says Belarusian grandmaster Sergey Kasparov. In the first work devoted exclusively to this topic, the author examines the various pawn structures in which doubled pawns appear. The discussion and explanation of each topic are carried on in the context of almost 150 annotated games.

Please have a look at (the sample pages of) The Hedgehog.

Or have a look at the (sample pages of) this practical guide to doubled pawns.
Best wishes,
