This paper briefly reviews the present state of the art of the microscopic theory of polarization bremsstrahlung. Methods for the description of polarization bremsstrahlung at an isolated atom and in a condensed matter, in crystals included, are considered. In the last case, coherent polarization bremsstrahlung appears, which was given the name parametric X radiation. The relation between polarization bremsstrahlung and another type of radiation, such as resonance transition radiation, is followed. It is noted that polarization bremsstrahlung shows promise for structure analysis of materials and for new radiation sources.
