**Description**:

The 1992/93 academic year at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute was devoted to Complex Algebraic Geometry. This volume collects survey articles that arose from this event, which took place at a time when algebraic geometry was undergoing a major change. To put it succinctly, algebraic geometry has opened up to ideas and connections from other fields that have traditionally been far away.
