This 1965 book is a very thorough text covering many classical topics in analysis. The book’s purpose is summarized on p. 53 as “The main goal of this text is to give a complete presentation of integration and differentiation,” and the book never strays very far from this goal.

The level of abstraction referred to in the second half of the title is not very high: the book deals with general measure spaces but is otherwise not very abstract. It has a moderate amount of material on function spaces, but these are presented to aid the work on integration and differentiation and not as subjects in themselves. For example, the book uses the Daniell approach to integration (through functionals) rather than defining integrals directly in terms of measures. Scattered throughout the book is a lot of material on Fourier analysis, although only on the real line.

The book has an excellent index and is more of a reference than a text. There are a lot of exercises, but some areas get many more than others and they seem to be included more to develop additional topics than to develop the reader's skill. The sequence of theorems is very well organized, so that no individual proof is very long but also every theorem is useful or interesting.

A good book that covers generally the same topics but in much less detail is Boas's A Primer of Real Functions. Another good book that also covers generally the same topics but is more abstract (and perhaps more modern) is Gert K. Pedersen’s *Analysis Now* (Springer, 1996).
