Emil Artin Notes by Albert A. Published under the title Modern Higher Algebra. This volume became one of the most popular in the series of lecture notes published by Courant. Many instructors used the book as a textbook, and it was popular among students as a supplementary text as well as a primary textbook. Because of its popularity, Courant has republished the volume under the new title Algebra with Galois Theory. Readership Undergraduate students interested in algebra. In summary, this book is a valuable supplement for a course on Galois theory.
Using the modern framework of abstract algebra, presenting each argument in its simplest and purest form, and stripping the theory from any unnecessary ballast, he manages to teach the subject in an utmost accessible, inspiring and profound manner.
Many contemporary textbooks on Galois theory need hundreds of pages to reach a comparable depth of exposition, alas with much less lucidity, elegance ,and paedagogical effect. This is why one can still learn from a grandmaster like Emil Artin, and why the present classic will maintain its everlasting significance also in the future.
