We review some of the many recent activities on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, focusing on some of the fundamental issues and general aspects. Using the language of stochastic Markov processes, we emphasize general properties of the evolution of configurational probabilities, as described by master equations.

The author illustrates non-equilibrium statistical physics by presenting a number of current and paradigmatic examples of systems that are out of equilibrium, and elucidates the range of techniques available to solve these systems.
