Hi, I've seen Birkhoff and Maclane recommended on these boards for an abstract algebra book. Looking at my library catalog online (closed for spring break :/) they have 2, one is simply called "Algebra" and the other "A Survey of Modern Algebra". I was wondering if these are the same book or which one is the "classic" that people refer to. Thanks. edit: nevermind, found the answer... The "survey" is the one.
