**DESCRIPTION: **
This book introduces the important ideas of algebraic topology by emphasizing the relation of these ideas
with other areas of mathematics. Rather than choosing one point of view of modern topology (homotropy
theory, axiomatic homology, or differential topology, say) the author concentrates on concrete problems in
spaces with a few dimensions, introducing only as much algebraic machinery as necessary for the problems
encountered. This makes it possible to see a wider variety of important features in the subject than is
common in introductory texts; it is also in harmony with the historical development of the subject. The book
is aimed at students who do not necessarily intend on specializing in algebraic topology.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 419-420) and indexes.
