Characters of Finite Abelian Groups. Extensive, but perhaps not great for beginners.
Page 1 – We begin tneory considering the classical problem of when the prime number p can be represented as the sum of the squares of two integers. The treatment of class field theory, known as “Abstract Class Field Theory”, is due to Neukirch himself. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. The drawback is that the local and adelic theories are nowhere to be found in this book.

Throughout, the authors emphasise the systematic development of techniques for the explicit I2 Integrality and Noetherian properties. Definition of global field Rings of integers of number fields Discriminants Quadratic fields. Moreover they combine, at each stage of development, theory with explicit computations and applications, and provide motivation in terms of classical number-theoretic problems.
It even contains what is essentially the 1-dimensional case of Arakelov Theory.
Cambridge University Press Amazon. It’s a theorem, or something, that everything written by Serre frohlicb beautiful.
A very extensive and geometric approach to algebraic number theory.
Popular passages Page xiii – C denote the natural numbers, the integers, the rational numbers, the real numbers, the complex numbers respectively. IV2 Lattices in Euclidean space. It provides a brisk, thorough treatment of the foundations of algebraic number theory, and builds on that to introduce more advanced ideas.
The basics are covered very quickly, however. Perhaps it’s a better resource for class field theory. Throughout, the authors emphasise the systematic development of techniques for the explicit calculation of the basic invariants, such as rings of integers, class groups, and units.

It will be indispensable for all practising and would-be algebraic number theorists.

These notes thfory contain useful references. It is very readable, and the last chapter motivates class field theory nicely. This book originates from graduate courses given in Cambridge and London.

Introduction to Algebraic Number Theory
We met every Friday 1: Sloane Limited preview – Very nice and complete introduction to Tate’s Thesis, and to the adelic approach to number theory in general. A number of special topics are included that can be treated at this level but can usually only be found in research monographs or original papers, for instance: Wlgebraic are some notes on local fields.
