About the book
The Third Edition of this highly successful textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students covers Groups, Rings, Modules and Fields, exhibits interplay of both Group and Field theory by means of Galois Theory and shows insolvability of a quintic, in general, by radicals.
NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION:
• Semisimple Modules and Related Results
