This book aims to fill the need for a comprehensive treatise on geo-metric measure theory. It contains a detailed exposition leading from the foundations of the theory to the most recent discoveries, including many results not previously published. It is intended both as a reference book for mature mathematicians and as a textbook for able students. The material of Chapter 2 can be covered in a first year graduate course on real analysis. Study of the later chapters is suitable preparation for re-search. Some knowledge of elementary set theory, topology, linear algebra and commutative ring theory is prerequisite for reading this book, but the treatment is selfcontained with regard to all those topics in multilinear algebra, analysis, differential geometry and algebraic topology which occur.
