Summary and Info
A textbook for an upper level mathematics course that illustrates many links within combinatorics that seem unrelated, and surveys the field sufficiently to allow students to follow talks at conferences. A course in modern algebra is recommended but not required. The second edition adds material to the 1998 first, updates references, and corrects some minor errors.
