David Wallace has written a text on modern algebra which is suitable for a first course in the subject given to mathematics undergraduates. It aims to promote a feeling for the evolutionary and historical development of algebra.

Each chapter contains examples, exercises and solutions, perfectly suited to aid self-study. All arguments in the text are carefully crafted to promote understanding and enjoyment for the reader.

Reviews - What do customers think about Groups, Rings and Fields (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series)?

Average text for abstract algebra  Jan 8, 2001
I have only used this book as a reference for the class in Abstract Algebra. The book is certainly an introductory text for undergraduate studies. However, I would be very reluctant to use it though, since it is not as comprehensive as it should be. The contents of the book is very good and just by reading the contents you could get a feeling that this is the one, but certainly the text is not so abroad. The author discusses only some main principles and theories of the abstract algebra, where I believe for an undergradute text, in order to get a good first start with the subject, one would require something more detailed in explanation. Also, one of the main lapses is the structure of the book. There are some examples for every chapter or better to say topics covered, and there are solution to exercises at the end of the book. I think the book would be great if there was a little bit more detailed approach to the topics.
Abstract Algebra basics  Apr 14, 2000
Good introduction to the concepts of groups, rings, and fields. Those wanting information on Galois theory should consult more advanced books however.
