""Serre had the great good sense to have notes taken at his 1988 lectures at Harvard, creating a slim volume of great interest..."" -BOOK NEWS Inc., June 2008
J.-P. Serre, one of the greatest mathematicians in our time, provides here a unique introduction to both some classical milestones and some recent developments in the realm of inverse Galois theory. ... [This book] will maintain its unique, unparalleled role in the literature on inverse Galois theory for further generations. Now as before, J.-P. Serre's masterpiece of expository writing is an unvaluable source of inspiration and incitement likewise. -Werner Kleinert, Zentralblatt MATH, January 2007
""Serre’s book helped to call the attention to a deep classical problem with connections to algebraic geometry, topology, algebra, and number theory. By carefully selecting examples, methods and topics, this book goes deeply into the problem."" -MAA Reviews, September 2008"
