This book is the second volume of the Handbook of the History of General Topology. As was the case for the first volume, the contributions contained in it concern either individual topologists, specific schools of topology, specific periods of development, specific topics or a combination of these. The second volume focuses on the work of famous topologists, such as W. Sierpinski, K. Kuratowski (both by R. Engelkind), S. Mazurkiewicz (by R. Pol) and R.G. Bing (by M. Starbird). Furthermore, it contains articles covering Uniform, Proximinal and Nearness Concepts in Topology (by H.L. Bentley, H. Herrlich, M. Husek), Hausdorff Compactifications (by R.E. Chandler, G. Faulkner), Continua Theory (by J.J. Charatonik), Generalized Metrizable Spaces (by R.E. Hodel), Minimal Hausdorff Spaces and Maximally Connected Spaces (by J.R. Porter, R.M. Stephenson Jr.), Orderable Spaces (by S. Purisch), Developable Spaces (by S.D. Shore) and The Alexandroff-Sorgenfrey Line (by D.E. Cameron). Together with the first volume and the forthcoming volume(s) this work on the history of topology, in all its aspects, is unique, and presents important views and insights into the problems and development of topological theories and applications of topological concepts, and into the life and work of topologists. As such it will encourage not only further study in the history of the subject, but also further mathematical research in the field. It is an invaluable tool for topology researchers and topology teachers throughout the mathematical world.
