Item description for Number Theory by H.G. Zimmer Helmut Hasse...
From the reviews: "...a fine book ... treats algebraic number theory from the valuation-theoretic viewpoint. When it appeared in 1949 it was a pioneer. Now there are plenty of competing accounts. But Hasse has something extra to offer. This is not surprising, for it was he who inaugurated the local-global principle (universally called the Hasse principle). This doctrine asserts that one should first study a problem in algebraic number theory locally, that is, at the completion of a vaulation. Then ask for a miracle: that global validity is equivalent to local validity. Hasse proved that miracles do happen in his five beautiful papers on quadratic forms of 1923-1924. ... The exposition is discursive. ... It is trite but true: Every number-theorist should have this book on his or her shelf." (Irving Kaplansky in Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, 1981)

Number Theory Oct 2, 2000
There has never been in any time a book in any language that can put on a par with Hasse's monumental refrence Number theory . It is a text as well as a great refrence, and it is sad that those people at springer verlag not just printed on a low quality papers, they put it altogether out of print.
