Item description for Basic Algebraic Geometry 1: Varieties in Projective Space by M. Reid Igor R. Shafarevich...

Basic Algebraic Geometry, Volume I, is a revised and expanded new edition of the first four chapters of Shafarevich's well-known introductory book on algebraic geometry. The author has added plenty of new, mostly concrete geometrical material such as Grassmannian varieties, plane cubic curves, the cubic surface, degenerations of quadrics and elliptic curves, the Bertini theorems, normal surface singularities. There are also some new number-theoretical applications. Shafarevich succeeds in making algebraic geometry accessible to non-specialists and beginners and his two-volume book will remain one of the most popular introductions to this field. The book is suitable for third-year undergraduates in mathematics and also for students of theoretical physics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Basic Algebraic Geometry 1: Varieties in Projective Space?

Someone hasn't read the first page of the index!!!!!!  Mar 20, 2006
I have been a student of AG for the past six years and I have come to the conclusion that Shafarevich is a great place to start. Having said this, one must have the necessary background in algebra and topology. I disagree with the other reviewer about doing this after Hartshorne--start here then do Hartshorne!!! Oh ya, the index refers to both volumes 1 and 2; read the first page of the index!!!
After Hartshorne!!!  Dec 3, 2003
This book is very good for the secondary course after learning with Harshorne's Algebraic geometry.
