Algebra based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
It's a shame such a great title is no longer in print. While it is far more readable than some of Birkhoff's other books, Algebra certainly doesn't shirk depth of coverage or content and provides the reader with an excellent preparation for more advanced study. Unlike most texts written for the undergraduate level, it includes a nice introduction to both lattice and category theory - development of the latter is in fact the emphasis of the book. Exercises are illuminating and well suited to and instructor who would rather assign a few challenging problems than many that amount to little more than drudgery. If you are interested in self-study, then find a copy, somewhere. §ne§
