A survey of research devoted to the achievement of a lasing action in the soft X-ray wavelength range is presented. General problems of laser produced plasmas considered as amplifying media are briefly described. The question of superradiance and of resonator for X-rays is considered. The most important mechanisms proposed to produce population inversions for XUV and some recent experimental results are described.
