This is an introduction to Galois Theory along the lines of Galois's Memoir on the Conditions for Solvability of Equations by Radicals. It puts Galois's ideas into historical perspective by tracing their antecedents in the works of Gauss, Lagrange, Newton, and even the ancient Babylonians. It also explains the modern formulation of the theory. It includes many exercises, with their answers, and an English translation of Galois's memoir.
