Review

W.S. Massey A Basic Course in Algebraic Topology "In the minds of many people algebraic topology is a subject which is a ~esoteric, specialized, and disjoint from the overall sweep of mathematical thought.a (TM) This straightforward introduction to the subject, by a recognized authority, aims to dispel that point of view by emphasizing: 1. the geometric motivation for the various concepts and 2. the applications to other areas."a "BULLETIN OF THE IRISH MATHEMATICS SOCIETY

Format: Hardcover
The text contains material from the author's earlier two books; Algebraic Topology: An Introduction (GTM 56), and Singular Homology Theory (GTM 70). The book starts with an introductory chapter on 2-manifolds and then continues with the fundamental group; which is conceptually easier than homology, with which some books on algebraic topology start. The only prerequisite for this book is a basic knowledge of general topology; and the book is easily accessible to anyone studying on his own. In short, I recommend the book to anyone interested in algebraic topology.
