I am wanting to find a good proof of the Lindemann-Weierstrass Theorem.

Most importantly I need the part that states that eα is transcendental where α ≠ 0 is algebraic.

What are good online resources or books for the proof?

Thank-you.

Ivan Niven has a nice little book called "Irrational Numbers" which contains a relatively elementary proof. There is also a proof in Jacobson's "Basic Algebra I," but it uses more algebraic machinery.
