This graduate-level text is intended for initial courses in algebra that proceed at a faster pace than undergraduate-level courses. Exercises appear throughout the text, clarifying concepts as they arise; additional exercises, varying widely in difficulty, are included at the ends of the chapters. Subjects include groups, rings, fields and Galois theory. 1983 edition. Includes 11 figures. Appendix. References. Index.

This is one of my favorite beginning graduate texts. Although it follows a very terse definition-example-theorem-proof style, the proofs and examples seem very enlightening. Each Chapter comes

with numerous exercises interleaved with the material, as well as

exercises at the end of the chapter. Groups, rings, fields, and modules are covered in depth.

My first taste of algebra came from Lang's book (big mistake). I then read Gallian's undergrad. book and tried Lang again, it was still very difficult. I finally found Grove. This is a great book. Very easy to read and understand. Although it doesn't cover everything in Lang, it covers everything that commonly comes up in a first year graduate class. The book's only drawback is it's difficulty to find. If you're looking for a good intro. to algebra text (and if you can find it) buy it!

I'm very glad to see this book picked up by Dover. It is excellent in every way. It is the best book for a first-year graduate course in algebra that I know of - much easier to use than Hungerford, which makes a great reference but lousy text. At $13.25 this is an absolute bargain!!
