This text examines the latest developments in multiparticle production in a dialogue between experiment and theory. Correlation and fluctuation phenomena in high energy collisions, physics from experiments at Hera and Fermilab and recent results from heavy ion collisions are discussed and multiplicity and inclusive distributions are reviewed, with emphasis on new results from LEP and Tevatron. The analyses are performed both in terms of phenomenological models and in the framework of QCD.
