Systems against the English Opening: book resources

From left to right, as White faces them:

1...b6: English Defence
White's most testing reply of course is 2.d4 but this is not compulsory
Odessky's English Defence (2007) has a chapter on the English Opening
1...Nc6: (it takes two to Tango)
This is mostly a transpositional move: after 2.d4 we have the Black Knights' Tango, while after 2.Nc3 e5 we have the Reversed Sicilian
Keene/Jacobs (1996) Complete Repertoire for Black uses 1...Nc6
1...c6: Slav style
The move ...c6 creates a concrete threat to capture on c4 and keep it with ...b5. and can give White some move-order headaches
It is hard for White to avoid positions with a Slav character after 2...d5; 2.Nf3 d5 3.b3 is a Reti opening, when Black can used 3...Nf6 and then either 4...Bf5 (Lasker) or 4...Bg4 (Capablanca), with equality
I don't know of a book looking at this for Black, but I believe Shankland's Chessable course on the Slav talks about the Catalan: This may help too:
1...c5: Benoni style
With ...Nf6 & ...d5: Rubinstein
I can't recall a book recommending this approach, but it's perfectly sound and I imagine you can pick out most of what you need from Hansen's 2000 book on the Symmetrical English (although of course unless you play the English yourself, most of your investment will be wasted)
STOP PRESS: "Delchev's Grunfeld Reloaded has a chapter on the Rubinstein Symmetrical English" (2019)
With ...e6: Hedgehog
Suba's Dynamic Chess Strategy is a hymn of praise to the Hedgehog, but for an opening book there is a choice:
Palkovi Hedgehog System Against The English Opening. Caissa Chess Books, 1997.
Lysyj, Igor; Ovetchkin, Roman (2017). The Hedgehog vs. the English/Reti. Chess Stars.
Suba, Mihai (2000). The Hedgehog. Batsford.
With ...g6: Symmetrical Variation
Palliser's Beating Unusual Chess Openings (2007) which uses the Symmetrical Variation (might suit a Benoni player but he does lean on the Botvinnik system with ...e5 too) as does Burgess' Idiot-Proof Opening repertoire
I don't know of a book that recommends Fischer's preferred setup with g6/c5/Nc6/Bg7/e6 with which he beat Smyslov and Petrosian in 1970, but again you can pick it out of the books that aren't from Black's point of view or use
1...d6: (the universal pancreas)
With ...g6: King's Indian Style
Most KID books seem to collapse in exhaustion after going through everything after 1.d4 and omit the English, but Dembo's Fighting the Anti-King's-Indians (2008) covers 1.c4 and I think is very good: nice balance of words and moves
1...e6: French style
Combined with ...Nf6, see below; with ...b6, see above; it's independent only with ...d5
Kaufman (2012) has offered 1...e6 and 2...d5, inviting a transposition to the Queen's Gambit, which might be White's best bet (Pritchett describes it as 'unavoidable')
Similarly, Kotronias: Fight 1.d4 with the Tarrasch (2019) should get you there, although he does not address 1.c4
Eingorn (2012) Rock-solid opening repertoire for Black discusses the pros and cons of 1.c4 e6
1...e5: Reversed Sicilian and after 2.Nc3:
With 2...Nf6 and 3...c6: (I suspect 2.g3 is awkward)
Delchev/Semkov (2016) Attacking the English/Reti
With 2...Nf6 and 3...d5: Reversed Open Sicilian
The gold standard for a book to combat the English Opening is probably something like Kotronias' Beating the Flank Openings (1996) which recommends the Reversed Sicilian (would suit a 1.e4 player)
No other book comes to mind but you can consult &
With 2...Nc6: Reversed Closed Sicilian
I'm happy to recommend Dempsey, T.; English Opening: A Line for Black; The Chess Player 1985 but best of luck finding a copy!
No other book comes to mind but I imagine you can find a playable set of lines in Hansen (2019) The Full English, but it's a shame that most of your investment will be wasted, so maybe use
With 2...Bb4
Mikhalevski 2016 Beating Minor Openings
With 2...d6: Smyslov system
This is to be found in several books: the second edition of Keene/Levy's Attacking Repertoire, Yrjola/Tella's Explosive Chess Opening Repertoire, and I expect several others
1...Nf6: Indian style
With ....e6: Nimzo/Queen's Indian style
This has the drawback of allowing 1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 e6 3.e4, the Flohr-Mikenas Attack.
With ...g6: King's Indian Style
See above
1...f5: Dutch style
With ...e6 and ...d6: Classical
Williams: Play the Classical Dutch (2003)
With ....e6 and ...d5: Stonewall
Johnsen, Bern, Agdestein: Win with the Stonewall Dutch (2009)
With ...g6: Leningrad
[Same problem as the KID books: the ones I know cover only 1.d4 ... but you're likely to end up in the Reversed Closed Sicilian anyway after ...e5]
Honorable exception: Demuth's Modernized Dutch (2019)
1....g6: Modern style
Fischer used this move order, which gives Black much flexibility; ....c5 was a common partner, in which case, see above
1...g5: Grob style
I think this can be recommended only to free spirits...
Basman (1989) The Killer Grob
