'Rings, Fields and Groups' gives a stimulating and unusual introduction to the results, methods and ideas now commonly studied on abstract algebra courses at undergraduate level. The author provides a mixture of informal and formal material which help to stimulate the enthusiasm of the student, whilst still providing the essential theoretical concepts necessary for serious study.

Retaining the highly readable style of its predecessor, this second edition has also been thoroughly revised to include a new chapter on Galois theory plus hints and solutions to many of the 800 exercises featured.
R. B. Allenby, Senior Lecturer, School of Mathematics, University of Leeds.
