Description The theory of finite simple groups enjoyed a period of spectacular activity in the s and s. The first edition of Gorenstein’s book was published inat the time of some of the first major classification results.
The second edition was published inwhen it was clear that the classification was understood and the proof grooups within reach.
Gorenstein’s treatment danel the subject proved prescient, as many of the developments between the two editions could be seen as continuations of the material in the book.
Even now, the book remains one of the best sources for an introduction to finite groups and the classification of the simple groups.
