Based on lectures to advanced undergraduate and toploogy graduate students, this is a thorough, sophisticated and modern treatment of elementary algebraic topology, essentially from a homotopy theoretic viewpoint.
The presentation of the homotopy theory and the account of duality in homology manifolds make the text ideal for a course on either homotopy or homology theory.
The idea of algebraic topology is to translate problems in topology into problems in algebra with the hope that they have a better chance of solution. The translation process is usually carried out by means of the homology or homotopy groups of a topological space. Much of the book is therefore concerned with the construction of these algebraic invariants, and with applications to topological problems, such as the classification of surfaces and duality theorems for manifolds.
Maunder has provided many examples and exercises as an aid, and the notes and references at the end of each chapter trace the historical development of the subject and also point the way to more advanced results. The author has given much attention to detail, yet ensures that the reader knows where he is going.
