This volume introduces the application of twocomponent spinor calculus and fibrebundle theory to complex general relativity. A review of basic and important topics is presented, such as twocomponent spinor calculus, conformal gravity, twistor spaces for Minkowski spacetime and for curved spacetime, Penrose transform for gravitation, the global theory of the Dirac operator in Riemannian fourmanifolds, various definitions of twistors in curved spacetime and the recent attempt by Penrose to define twistors as spin
