Summary: Helping to make the study of modern algebra more accessible, this text gradually introduces and develops concepts through helpful features that provide guidance on the techniques of proof construction and logic analysis. The text develops mathematical maturity for students by presenting the material in a theorem-proof format, with definitions and major results easily located through a user-friendly format.
