Graham Burgess writes a fine book, which both presents the virtues of Alekhine's Defense, while pointing out the white lines that make it a challenge to play. He does not try to make up frothy generalities about the theory, recognizing that the different variations can lead to very different treatments subject to case-by-case analysis.

A radical defense, first introduced to master chess by the fourth world champion, Alexander Alekhine. Black immediately attacks the e4 pawn with his knight, tempting White to advance all of his center pawns in the hope that they will prove over-extended.

This idea originates from chess world champion Alexander Alekhine who used it 1921 in a tournament in Budapest. White builds up an impressing pawn formation in the center which will be attacked later by Black. This chess opening is quite bizarre and ignores chess principles of the old school as Black allows the opponent to chase his knight around as he pleases right after the first move. The balance and symmetry of the position is completely disturbed and only good players will be able to cope with the complexities of the position.
Chess Opening Theory/1. lt; Chess Opening Theory 1. e4(Redirected from Chess/Alekhine Defence). This attack is an invitation for White to push his pawn forward and gain a tempo by attacking the knight. The idea behind Black's strategy is to have White build a large pawn center that is hard to defend.
