We look from a new point of view at the definition and basic properties of the Lebesgue measure and integral on Euclidean spaces, on abstract spaces, and on locally compact Hausdorff spaces. We use mini sums to give all of them a unified treatment that is more efficient than the standard ones. We also give Fubini's theorem a proof that is nicer and uses much lighter technical baggage than the usual treatments.
