    Review quote
    M.A. Armstrong Groups and Symmetry "This book is a gentle introductory text on group theory and its application to the measurement of symmetry. It covers most of the material that one might expect to see in an undergraduate course ... The theory is amplified, exemplified and properly related to what this part of algebra is really for by discussion of a wide variety of geometrical phenomena in which groups measure symmetry. Overall, the author's plan, to base his treatment on the premise that groups and symmetry go together, is a very good one, and the book deserves to succeed."-MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
