abstract = {In this paper we discuss the problem of when the projective tensor product of two Banach spaces has the Radon-Nikodym property. We give a detailed exposition of the famous examples of Jean Bourgain and Gilles Pisier showing that there are Banach spaces X and Y such that each has the Radon-Nikodym property but for which their projective tensor product does not; this result depends on the classical theory of absolutely summing, integral and nuclear operators, as well as the famous Grothendieck inequality for its punch-line. In the last section of this paper we discuss many results of a positive character, due to Qingying Bu and various of his coauthors; in particular, we mention results of Bu, Diestel, Dowling and Oja to the effect that if one of the spaces has a boundedly complete FDD then the projective tensor product of two spaces with the RNP has it and a modification of a result of Bu and Pei-Kee Lin to the effect that if X is a Banach lattice with RNP and Y is any Banach space with RNP then their projective product has RNP.},
