Galois theory is a mature mathematical subject of particular beauty. Any Galois theory book written nowadays bears a great debt to Emil Artin's classic text "Galois Theory," and this book is no exception. While Artin's book pioneered an approach to Galois theory that relies heavily on linear algebra, this book's author takes the linear algebra emphasis even further. This special approach to the subject together with the clarity of its presentation, as well as the choice of topics covered, has made the first edition of this book a more than worthwhile addition to the literature on Galois Theory. The second edition, with a new chapter on transcendental extensions, will only further serve to make the book appreciated by and approachable to undergraduate and beginning graduate math majors.

From the reviews:

"The text offers the standard material of classical field theory and Galois theory, though in a remarkably original, unconventional and comprehensive manner ... . the book under review must be seen as a highly welcome and valuable complement to existing textbook literature ... . It comes with its own features and advantages ... it surely is a perfect introduction to this evergreen subject. The numerous explaining remarks, hints, examples and applications are particularly commendable ... just as the outstanding clarity and fullness of the text." (Werner Kleinert, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1089 (15), 2006)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book is a valuable reference, covering many more topics than most of the standard books on the subject." (Mowaffaq Hajja, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1195, 2010)
