## Class Field Theory (Google eBook)This classic book, originally published in 1968, is based on notes of a year-long seminar the authors ran at Princeton University. The primary goal of the book was to give a rather complete presentation of algebraic aspects of global class field theory ... In this revised edition, two mathematical additions complementing the exposition of the original text are made. The new edition also contains several new footnotes, additional references, and historical comments. |
