I did a search for this one and found one ( new ) at Amazon.com but that one was priced $132.00 !

Is that the real new-prize or did they make a mistake?

I just bought "The New Sicilian Dragon" and it is a great book, full of illustrative games and it is well explaned. It is not the 'old way' of playing the Sicilian Dragon, but the Dragadorf Sicilian. The Dragadorf is some kind of mix between the Dragon and the Najdorf.
Recommended!

There are 2 new ones."The New Sicilian Dragon" by Simon Williams 224 pages came out in 2009 and "Starting Out-Sicilian Dragon" by Andrew Martin 208 pages and it came out in 2005.I have not gone through either of them so I dont know which is best.I do have several of the "Starting Out" series however and they are always excellent with plenty of diagrams and a clear understanding of the plans and objectives of each major variations.Good luck.

Funny, I have Chess Openings for White Explained, so this one could fit well with that one.
Still, maybe there is a book about the 'normal' Dragon, which I prefer slightly...

In "Chess Openings for Black Explained" by GM's Lev Alburt, Roman Dzindzichashvill and Perelshteyn they recommend the "Accelarated" Dragon which is 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 g6!? with lots of original TN's and plenty of diagrams.With the regular Dragon you may have to come face to face with the dreaded Yugoslav Attack.

I am looking for a book about the Sicilian Dragon.
I know about an old book from David Levy ( about 30 years old ), but that is not what I am looking for, because it is a very out-dated book.

So what is a good, recent book about the Dragon, preferrably with a lot of illustrated games?
