In the proof of Proposition 3A.5 in Hatcher p.265 (http://www.math.cornell.edu/~hatcher/AT/ATch3.4.pdf), at the bottow of the page, he writes,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Since the squares commute, there is induced a map Tor(A,B) -->Tor(B,A), [...]"

How does this follow? The map Tor(A,B)-->[itex]A\otimes F_1[/itex] is the connecting homomorphism coming from the long exact sequence (see (6) and its proof) and Tor(B,A)-->[itex]F_1\otimes A[/itex] is inclusion.

It one starts with an element x of Tor(A,B), then pushes it to [itex]A\otimes F_1[/itex] to an element x' and then to [itex]F_1\otimes A[/itex] to an element x'', there is no guarantee as far as I can see that there will be a y in Tor(B,A) with y=x''...

Thanks for any help.
