...it is not possible in the space of a review to do full justice to this magnificent volume, which combines scholarship, namely the bringing of past rends to current view in the light of later developments, with excellent exposition...
The London Mathematical Society Newsletter
....The book's editor, I.M. James, himself a distinguished topologist, has drawn together more than 40 authors for this account. ......the reader enjoys a consistently rich but varied diet....

....despite its physical weight this collection of forty articles is not easy to put down. Anyone who spends time with this book will come away with a sense of the profound depth and epix scope of the youngest classical area of mathematics.......The reader who takes up History of Topology will find much more than space permits me to describe. That is as it should be, for topology is a rich terrain with boundaries that will continue to widen as we learn to see.

The editor, who himself has lived and shaped part of this history for the last fifty years, has done a superb job in choosing the right contributors and leaving them a considerable amount of liberty.

Présentation de l'éditeur
As will be seen from the list of contents the articles cover a wide range of topics. Some are more technical than others, but the reader without a great deal of technical knowledge should still find most of the articles accessible. Some are written by professional historians of mathematics, others by historically-minded mathematicians, who tend to have a different viewpoint.

The essays assume various amounts of background, proportionate to their subjects. In generally they are very clear and if you have any knowledge at all of a topic you can read an essay on it here at least well enough to decide if you want to work harder on it.
The book concentrates more on manifolds, fixed point theorems, algebraic topology, and homological algebra, than on issues in general or point set topology. It covers Poincare, Brouwer, Weyl, and gets up to derived categories. It could not possibly cover everything in that range. For one, Lefschetz is mentioned often but he could well have deserved a whole article on himself. Or there could have been an article on the Princeton school. But incomplete we must all resign ourselves to be.
The book is a huge amount of information, very well organized and presented.
No home should be without one.
