With this review, Physics-Uspekhi continues to discuss one of the most mysterious phenomenon in particle physics, that of CP violation. Recent research in this area has focused especially on the properties of B mesons. Successful B-factory experiments have allowed both the detection and detailed study of CP violation in B-meson decays. Presented here is a state of the art review of the field.
