Abstract: Let $ (X,\Sigma ,\mu )$ be a positive measure space, and $ \phi $ be a concave nondecreasing function on $ {R^ + } \to {R^ + }$ with $ \phi (0) = 0$. Let $ {N_\phi }(R)$ be the Lorentz space associated with the function $ \phi $. In this paper a complete characterization of the extreme points of the unit ball of $ {N_\phi }(R)$ is provided. It is also shown that the space $ {N_\phi }(R)$ is not reflexive in all nontrivial cases, thus generalizing a result of Lorentz. Several analytical properties of spaces $ {N_\phi }(R)$, and their abstract analogues $ {N_\phi }(E)$, are obtained when E is a Banach space.
