This classic textbook, now reissued, offers a clear exposition of modern probability theory and of the interplay between the properties of metric spaces and probability measures. The new edition has been made even more self-contained than before; it now includes a foundation of the real number system and the Stone-Weierstrass theorem on uniform approximation in algebras of functions. Several other sections have been revised and improved, and the comprehensive historical notes have been further amplified. A number of new exercises have been added, together with hints for solution.

'A marvellous work which will soon become a standard text in the field for both teaching and reference ... a complete and pedagogically perfect presentation of both the necessary preparatory material of real analysis and the proofs throughout the text. Some of the topics and proofs are rarely found in other textbooks.' Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society 'Careful, scholarly, and stimulating. It would be a pleasure to teach a mathematically-oriented graduate-level course from this text.' Short Book Reviews of the ISI '[It] will serve for a long time as a standard reference.' Zentralblatt fur und ihre Grenzgebiete 'What makes the book special ... is the care and scholarship with which the material is treated, and the choice of additional topics ... not usually covered in first year graduate courses.' Mathematical Reviews 'The book serves as a clear, rigorous, and complete introduction to modern probability theory using methods of mathematical analysis, and a description of relations between the two fields ... it could be very useful for students interested in learning both topics, it can also serve as complementary reading to standard lectures. Teachers preparing their graduate level courses can use the book as an excellent, rigorously written and complete source.' EMS Newsletter
