General TopologyAimed at graduate math students, this classic work is a systematic exposition of general topology and is intended to be a reference and a text. As a reference, it offers a reasonably complete coverage of the area, resulting in a more extended treatment than normally given in a course. As a text, the exposition in the earlier chapters proceeds at a pedestrian pace. A preliminary chapter covers those topics requisite to the main body of work.

LibraryThing Review
User Review  trurl  LibraryThingThere are two introductions to general topology which are classics. Thsi book, Kelley, is the lighter one of them, while Engelking is the heavier one. Read full review
Book a bit old. The concept of filtre or ultrafiltre is not addressed. Filtres are very powerful tools and using ultrafiltres, we can define hyperreal numbers.
