Most probability texts that do not use measure theory seemed to be geared toward engineers and the like, while more advanced texts already assume a strong background in measure theory and Lebesgue integration.

I'm not too familiar with measure theory, (my analysis background is limited to Rudin's PMA Ch. 1 - 10), so I'd appreciate some recommendations that do not assume an analysis background beyond Rudin's PMA. I'd be okay with a text that uses measure and Lebesgue theory as long as it sufficiently presents the material on its own.

Thank you very much.

I like Robert Ash's Real Analysis and Probability.

Williams' Probability with Martingales.

He assumes little background in measure theory but walks you through the development of the necessary machinery, and more importantly, helps you understand why it's necessary. I strongly recommend.

I recommend the book Theory of Probability and Random Process. This is the textbook used in Princeton. By Leonid Koralov, Yakov G. Sinai.

I like a recent book by John Walsh Knowing the Odds: An Introduction to Probability.

"Foundations of Modern Probability" by Olav Kallenberg is imho very good.

It contains a HUGE amount of material and is self-contained.
