Now also available in paperback, this Handbook is an introduction to set-theoretic topology for students in the field and for researchers in other areas for whom results in set-theoretic topology may be relevant. The aim of the editors has been to make it as self-contained as possible without repeating material which can easily be found in standard texts. The Handbook contains detailed proofs of core results, and references to the literature for peripheral results where space was insufficient. Included are many open problems of current interest. In general, the articles may be read in any order. In a few cases they occur in pairs, with the first one giving an elementary treatment of a subject and the second one more advanced results. These pairs are: Hodel and Juhasz on cardinal functions; Roitman and Abraham-Todorcevic on S- and L-spaces; Weiss and Baumgartner on versions of Martin's axiom; and Vaughan and Stephenson on compactness properties.

...an indispensable reference for many years to come ...a massive undertaking... I would recommend that anyone interested in general topology take a look at this book ...many set-theorists are going to want a copy of their own. -- Stewart Baldwin The Journal of Symbolic Logic
