The Carus Mathematical Monographs 15. Washington, DC: Mathematical Association of America (ISBN 0-88385-015-X/hbk). xi, 202 p. (1996).
A new edition of the well known ring monograph.
From the Afterword by L. W. Small: “Noncommutative rings” is a classic. It is fair to say that almost every practicing ring theorist has, at some time, studied portions of this book. Herstein’s style and grace make ring theory especially attractive. In this reprinting we have not changed text – only corrected typos. There are no additional chapters or remarks in the body of the text. ... However, we do want to add a few remarks as a guide to the current literature and an indication of some of the enormous development in ring theory since “Noncommutative rings” appeared.
