In addition to techniques for applying characters to "pure" group theory, much of the book focuses on properties of the characters themselves and how these properties reflect and are reflected in the structure of the group. Problems follow each chapter. Prerequisite a first-year graduate algebra course. "A pleasure to read."—American Mathematical Society. 1976 edition.
