Item description for The Taimanov Sicilian by Graham Burgess...

The Taimanov Variation is one of Black's most flexible approaches to the Sicilian. With his "ideal" move order, Black maintains plenty of options while sidestepping some of White's most dangerous attacking plans. The main game-plan is counterattack, but unlike in many Sicilian lines, Black can tailor his plan of development according to how White arranges his pieces. The Taimanov has been used to good effect by many outstanding players of recent decades, notably Karpov, Polugaevsky, Andersson, and of course, Taimanov himself. This book discusses in detail all lines after 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 Nxd4 Nc6, including the "pure" Taimanov approach with Nge7 and the more popular "Paulsen" lines with ...Qc7. Move-order subtleties, including possible transpositions to the Scheveningen, are discussed in detail. All analysis has been scrupulously computer-checked.
