THE THEORY OF GROUPS, By H.
Zassenhaus. 180 pages. 6x9. (An English translation of the famous German textbook).
The tremendous development of algebra in the last 25 years has made long overdue a fresh presentation of group theory which would make use of modern methods and concepts.
"The treatment here presented achieves a certain unity which the classical presentation lacked. . . . This method of approach is likely to appear more coherent than the former to students approaching groups hi detail for the first time."
