Yes, this is a landmark book and yes this book has served many a fine mathematician but, let’s be honest here, this book is out dated.
Whereas, if your trying to learn the subject matter for your own benefit or for research reasons, then I would not recommend this text. The invasion of algebra had occurred on three fronts through the construction of cohomology theories for groups, Lie algebras, and associative algebras.
Write a customer review. This book presents a single homology and also cohomology theory that embodies all three; a large number of results is thus established in a general framework.

Here’s how restrictions apply. Warehouse Deals Open-Box Discounts. Yes, it is nice to go back and read the works of the masters, the pioneers and wrap yourself up in a nice warm blanket of original and new thought.
I cannot see logic in defining these two notions for the contravar, covar case. Sure this text deserves 5 stars for being well written, for being a landmark text and for many other reasons but, this texts hay day has gone and went. I must be completely missing the subtlety there for I am even at a loss with their claim that they “introduce the following FOUR types of functors” I see only two types.
Subsequently, each of the three theories is singled out by a suitable specialization, and its specific properties are studied. Thanks Makoto, for pointing out that they define it only for covar,contravar case.

From these, “higher order” derived of operations are obtained, which enjoy all the properties usually attributed to homology theories. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? This leads in a natural way to the study of “functors” and of their “derived functors. For those of you who are new to the field, my suggestion is to stay far away from this text.

When this book was written, methods of algebraic topology had caused revolutions in the world of pure algebra. That is certainly not correct. If this is the error I think it is and a bad one toohas it been corrected subsequently and where? Vermani’s text or Rotmans text instead. I imagine L and R should stand for left and right.
