Weber's three-volume set on algebra was for many years the standard text on algebra. Published at the end of the nineteenth century, it helped usher group theory to a central place in twentieth century mathematics. Volume 1 covers foundational material. Volume 2 covers group theory and its applications, plus the theory of algebraic numbers. Volume 3 covers advanced topics, such as algebraic functions, elliptic functions and class field theory. Although notations have changed somewhat and algebra has become more abstract that it was in Weber's day, many of the same themes and ideas important today are central topics in Weber's book, which may be why it has become a classic.
