This monograph is a follow up to the author's classic text Boolean-Valued Models and Independence Proofs in Set Theory, providing an exposition of some of the most important results in set theory obtained in the 20th century--the independence of the continuum hypothesis and the axiom of choice. Aimed at research students and academics in mathematics, mathematical logic, philosophy, and computer science, the text has been extensively updated with expanded introductorymaterial, new chapters, and a new appendix on category theory, and includes recent developments in the field. Numerous exercises, along with the enlarged and entirely updated background material, make this an ideal text for students in logic and set theory.
