Sheaf Theory is modern, active field of mathematics at the intersection of algebraic topology, algebraic geometry and partial differential equations. This volume offers a comprehensive and self-contained treatment of Sheaf Theory from the basis up, with emphasis on the microlocal point of view.

From the reviews:

"Clearly and precisely written, and contains many interesting ideas: it describes a whole, largely new branch of mathematics." -Bulletin of the L.M.S.
