'A very useful book, which emphazises the relation between number theory and algebra offering also a very comprehensible introduction to a relatively new branch of algebra.' Monatshefte fur Mathematik
'... this textbook is absolutely self-contained, with the prerequisites kept to a minimum. The exposition is perfectly lucid, rigorous, detailed and user-friendly, which makes the book also suitable for private study. In summary, this is a highly interesting and original textbook on basic abstract algebra, with many topical extras and didactic novelties. It is perfectly suited for beginners in the field...' Werner Kleinert, Zentralblatt MATH
'Unlike many books on abstract algebra, this one is written in a very lively style, with emphasis on illuminating examples and applications. This makes the book a valuable addition to undergraduate literature on this topical subject.' EMS Newsletter
"Lauritzen does a great job of motivating the concepts covered. The title of the book seems to be contradictory, but after reading the book, you will really have the feeling that Lauritzen achieved his goal: to concretize the abstract without losing rigor and depth. The text is very readable, and the well-chosen exercises help the reader understand the material. I highly recommend this book as a text for teaching abstract algebra. If you are looking for a solid introduction to the topic of abstract algebra, this is the book for you." Computing Reviews
