What is the best book on Modern Algebra?
Level from popular to undergraduate.
And the history of this subject (who first introduced the notions of the ring and field?)

For history see
"The development of Galois theory from Lagrange to Artin" by B. Melvin Kiernan, published in Archive of the History of Exact Sciences #8(1971-1972) pp. 40-154
There's a section called "The Development of Field Theory" which starts on p. 125.
