This book has everything a math textbook should have. The examples are apt and abundant. The proofs are well-phrased, with just enough detail but not too much. There's a smattering of interesting applications (and toys). And the exercises are downright brilliant--never too hard, but never easy. But there's even more to this book: Gallian's vision of algebra as a centuries-spanning collaborative effort shines from every page. I have never encountered such a smart book or one better suited to self-education. I unreservedly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is a great coursebook on Abstract Algebra. The level is suitable for students of undergraduate to advanced-undergraduate caliber. Abstract Algebra is covered in sections from Basic Concepts to Groups to Rings and finally Fields with an optional fifth section on Advanced Topics including Galois Theory and the Sylow Theorem.Was this review helpful?
