The 1γ* process e+e → γ*\( bar{q} \)q → hadrons has a fundamental status in QCD. At energies in the \( \sqrt s = 100 \) GeV range another fundamental process, e+e → e +e γγ →e+e ; \( bar{q} \)q → → e+e hadrons, becomes experimentally accessible. These lectures describe what QCD predicts for these two-photon processes.
