A clearly written book, which uses exclusively algebraic language (and no cohomology), and which will be useful for every algebraist or number theorist. It is easily accessible and suitable also for first-year graduate students.

These are notes of a series of lectures, aimed at covering the essentials of Field Theory and Ramification Theory as may be needed for local and global class field theory. Included are the two sections on cyclic extensions and abelian extensions.

The book deals with linear algebra, including fields, vector spaces, homogeneous linear equations, and determinants, extension fields, polynomials, algebraic elements, splitting fields, group characters, normal extensions, roots of unity, and more.

This text follows the usual path through to Galois groups, but just for subfields of the complex numbers. It takes as its goal the insolubility of polynomials by radicals. There is a chapter that gives a proof of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra.
