'… masterfully written. It has to be recommended to number theorists and more general to working algebraists.' J. Schoissengeier, Monatshefte für Mathematik
'… ideally suited for non-specialists who would like to know quickly what algebraic number theory is about but who do not wish to study thick volumes dealing with that subject.' Wladyslaw Narkiewicz, Zentralblatt für Mathematik
'… very readable. It is suitable for graduate students or non-specialists who wish to learn algebraic number theory.' Gabor Megyesi, Acta Sci. Math.
'It is written in a nice (but necessarily concise) style, containing exercises to broaden the reader's knowledge and skills. The result is a very solid introduction to the subject.' EMS
'The carefully chosen material is further accompanied by a large number of illustrative examples and exercises. Those features make the book an excellent guide for the reader who wants to find out what algebraic number theory is all about.' Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde
A 2001 account of Algebraic Number Theory, a field which has grown to touch many other areas of pure mathematics. Encompasses everything that graduate students and pure mathematicians interested in the subject are likely to need. Many exercises and an annotated reading list are included.
