Description:
The text demonstrates the use of general concepts by applying theorems from various areas in the context of one problem -- solving the quintic. This book helps students at the advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate levels to develop connections between the algebra, geometry, and analysis that they know, and to better appreciate the totality of what they have learned.

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.
