This book provides a problem-oriented first course in algebraic number theory. ... The authors have done a fine job in collecting and arranging the problems. Working through them, with or without help from a teacher, will surely be a most efficient way of learning the theory. Many of the problems are fairly standard, but there are also problems of a more original type. This makes the book a useful supplementary text for anyone studying or teaching the subject. ... This book deserves many readers and users.

The book covers topics ranging from elementary number theory (such as the unique factorization of integers or Fermat's little theorem) to Dirichlet's theorem about primes in arithmetic progressions and his class number formula for quadratic fields, and it treats standard material such as Dedekind domains, integral bases, the decomposition of primes not dividing the index, the class group, the Minkowski bound and Dirichlet's unit theorem ... the reviewer is certain that many students will benefit from this pathway into the fascinating realm of algebraic number theory.
