Τhe classification of complex algebraic surfaces is a very classical subject which goes back to the old Italian school of algebraic geometry with Enriques and Castelnuovo. However, the exposition in the present book is modern and follows Mori's approach to the classification of algebraic varieties. The text includes the $P_{12}$ theorem, the Sarkisov programme in the surface case and the Noether–Castelnuovo theorem in its classical version.
