This is an extremely engaging introduction to abstract algebra by one of this country's most prolific and creative algebraists. Recognising that although the axiomatic method is unavoidable it is intially uncomfortable for many students, he adopts a relatively informal style which is constantly encouraging without ever lapsing into imprecision. Aided by a relaxed, friendly expository style, his expertise, sureness of touch and contagious enthusiasm for algebra shine through on every page this is a book to study, savour and enjoy.
Altogether this is a concise but solid introduction into algebra and linear algebra * Internationale mathematische Nachrichten *
(Cameron) forms an ideal basis for first and second units in abscract algebra, for second or third-level courses in group theory, and for supporting courses in Galois theory and coding theory. The exposition is clear, the prerequisites minimal and it covers a lot of ground. * The Times Higher Education Supplement *
