**Description**:

Ideas of projective geometry keep reappearing in seemingly unrelated fields of mathematics. This book provides a rapid route for graduate students and researchers to contemplate the frontiers of contemporary research in this classic subject. The authors include exercises and historical and cultural comments relating the basic ideas to a broader context.
