At some point, I'd like to learn both Galois Theory and Representation Theory. I currently know a lot of Group Theory and Linear Algebra, as well as some Ring Theory. I was thinking of reading chapters 9, 13, and 14 in Dummit and Foote for Galois Theory, and Chapters 18 and 19 for Representation Theory.
Is Dummit and Foote a decent source for both of these topics? If so, do I need to read the chapters on Modules and Vector spaces to understand the representation theory chapters in particular (I know about vector spaces but not so much about modules)? And if not, are there any good recommendations for texts that are good introductions without being too dry?
