From Our Editors

A Course in the Theory of Groups is a comprehensive introduction to general group theory. Presupposing only a basic knowledge of abstract algebra, it introduces the reader to the different branches of group theory and their principal accomplishments. The book stresses the unity of group theory and draws attention to connections with other areas of algebra. Numerous exercises are given which supplement the material in the text.
