The novel X-ray sources described in this book differ from well established radiation sources such as, X-ray tubes, synchrotron radiation, free-electron lasers, or plasma X-ray sources in many aspects. Although the basic principles of most of these effects have been well known for quite some time, it is only in recent years that a growing community of research laboratories has started investigating in detail the feasibility of these effects as practical radiation sources. In the theoretical description a unified view of the effects is given, underlining their common properties. The most recent development are discussed, quoting also the most relevant papers where references to further work can be found.
