This is an advanced course in complex algebraic geometry presupposing only some familiarity with theory of algebraic curves or Riemann surfaces. The goal is to understand the Enriques classification of surfaces from the point of view of Mori-theory.

An introductory panorama of current progress in the field, addressed to both beginners and experts. This volume offers expository overviews of the state of the art in many areas of algebraic geometry. Prerequisites are kept to a minimum ...
