"This book is devoted to the study of semigroups (associative multiplicative systems for which no cancellation rules are postulated) and their linear representations in Banach spaces. Commutative semigroups receive generous but not exclusive attention."

-- M. H. Stone

"This volume is a revised edition, with Phillips as co-author, of the well-known book of Hille under the same title. The revision is a thorough one, involving rearrangement, the addition of new background material, and the incorporation of many new results. Each part and each chapter commences with a summary, and each chapter closes with a short list of general references to the bibliography presented at the end of the book. Other references are liberally supplied in the body of the text. There is an extensive index."
