Abstract: This review presents a personal view of the role that starbursts play in the star formation history of the Universe. It focuses mainly on the properties of nearby starburst galaxies selected for their strong ultraviolet and/or far-infrared emission. The similarities between local starbursts and star-forming galaxies at high redshift are also presented. I also discuss the role that luminous and ultraluminous infrared galaxies, and merging systems play in the formation and evolution of galaxies.
