**Description**:

This text is not intended to be encyclopedic; rather, a few themes central to universal algebra have been developed suficiently to bring the reader to the brink of current research. The choice of topics most certainly reflects the authors' interests: a brief but substantial introduction to lattices, the most general and fundamental notions of universal algebra, a careful development of Boolean algebras, discriminator varieties, the introduction to some basic concepts, tools, and results of model theory.
