The Algebraic Theory of Modular Systems
by Francis Sowerby Macaulay
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1916
Number of pages: 140
Many of the ideas introduced by F.S. Macaulay in this classic book have developed into central concepts in what has become the branch of mathematics known as Commutative Algebra. Today his name is remembered through the term 'Cohen-Macaulay ring'.

This is a text for a basic course in commutative algebra, it should be accessible to those who have studied algebra at the beginning graduate level. The book should help the student reach an advanced level as quickly and efficiently as possible.
