This article discusses at a qualitative level a number of issues at the forefront of current understanding and developments in frustrated quantum magnetism. The focal point of the presentation is the spin liquid, which is introduced in terms of (un)broken spin and lattice symmetries. An overview of the full spectrum of research activity in the field is obtained by considering selected examples from experimental approaches to realising spin-liquid states, from theoretical efforts which seek both to classify spin liquids according to their physical properties and to broaden the search for spin-liquid behaviour, and from numerical techniques which offer the prospect of qualitatively new insight into frustrated spin systems.

Keywords: frustration; quantum magnetism; spin liquid; topological order
