This book builds new foundations of Iwasawa theory, based on a systematic study of cohomological invariants of big Galois representations in the framework of derived categories. A new duality formalism is developed, which leads to generalized Cassels-Tate pairings and generalized \(p\)-adic height pairings. One of the applications is a parity result for Selmer groups associated to Hilbert modular forms.
