I need a good book to study abstract algebra (group,ring, field) from basic.I have artin's , rotman's and dummit and Foote in my mind. But Artin's book is somewhat hard for me to understand. Please suggest me which of the above books explain group theory from basic. But please be specific...I am already confused.. please help me.
My favourite book in this field is "Abstract Algebra" by I. N. Herstein. A pdf copy is available here: http://faculty.ksu.edu.sa/fawaz/343/Books/Herstein-3thEditon.pdf
