AC, the axiom of choice, because of its non-constructive character, is the most controversial mathematical axiom. It is shunned by some, used indiscriminately by others. This treatise shows paradigmatically that disasters happen without AC and they happen with AC. Illuminating examples are drawn from diverse areas of mathematics, particularly from general topology, but also from algebra, order theory, elementary analysis, measure theory, game theory, and graph theory.
