This monograph covers the recent major advances in various areas of set theory.
From the reviews:
"One of the classical textbooks and reference books in set theory....The present `Third Millennium' edition...is a whole new book. In three parts the author offers us what in his view every young set theorist should learn and master....This well-written book promises to influence the next generation of set theorists, much as its predecessor has done." --MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
