I am looking for a good textbook that can help developing intuition in algebra. I know a bit of number theory (Fermat's little theorem), algebra (up to fields), and topology. Are there good books that teach algebra with references to number theory and topology?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I learnt from Artin's textbook (up to chapter 5). It has no number theory at all and provides too little intuition for me.
