Categories and sheaves appear almost frequently in contemporary advanced mathematics. This book covers categories, homological algebra and sheaves in a systematic manner starting from scratch and continuing with full proofs to the most recent results in the literature, and sometimes beyond. The authors present the general theory of categories and functors, emphasizing inductive and projective limits, tensor categories, representable functors, ind-objects and localization.

From the reviews:
"This book of Kashiwara and Schapira, recognized specialists in algebraic analysis, is a detailed full-scale exposition of categories, homological algebra and sheaves. These notions are presented from scratch up to the most recent (sometimes new) results ... ." (Corrado Marastoni, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 k)
