Some years ago when I took Introductory Algebra at UCLA I discovered Dr Stahl's book, which presents the subject exactly the way it should be; a clear-cut account of the historical development of Algebra, including translations of the original papers (Abel, Galois) which itself makes this book unique. Exercises are numerous and they actually do provide insight into the subject, also a unique feature among today's 'textbooks'. I recommend this book for those who have a genuine interest in the subject, beyond just earning a good grade in the class. I believe that this book put me on the right course in my understanding of what meaningful Mathematics is, a process which culminated in acceptance into a very prestigious graduate programme in Mathematics.
