I'm taking an honors-level algebra class and we're getting into group actions, Sylow subgroups and semidirect products. These topics are fairly intimidating, but the lengthier discussions in the book (Dummit and Foote) have been very helpful in bringing these topics down to earth - for example, investigating the structure of groups of order $pq$, $p^2q$, classifying all groups of order 30, etc.
Seeing these ideas put to use "in the wild" makes them a lot more tractable. Therefore I'm looking for further reading material in this vein, i.e. substantial discussions that use many of the techniques and ideas that one would find in a solid undergraduate group theory course. Ideas I had: research papers in group theory which would be accessible to someone at my level, materials used in graduate courses, miscellaneous articles and expository writings. D&F has plenty of exercises but even more couldn't hurt. And I'm open to sources that go a little beyond what might be expected of an undergraduate.
