This is an unaltered Dover reprint of a book first published by Wiley in 1982. A "Telegraphic Review" appeared in the January 1983 issue of the American Mathematical Monthly:

Generally set in Rn, this beautiful book is less abstract, more accessible to undergraduates than Valentine's Convex Sets with which it invites comparison.  Same audience, same goals, same style as Roberts and Varberg's Convex Functions, to which it is a natural companion volume.  A must for every mathematics library. AWR

The author specifies linear algebra and basic point-set topology as the pre-requisites for reading the book.
