This paper presents a brief review of x-ray Raman scattering and some of our calculations on Raman scattered line shapes from light elements. We summarise the history of the Raman process in the x-ray region and present a detailed theory of the Raman scattering from an atomic many-electron system. Actual calculations of the Raman cross-section using this theory in single-particle approximation are given. The process of internal resonance Raman scattering is also discussed in the same formulation. The Raman cross-section is compared with the cross-sections of other x-ray scattering processes.
