This self-contained introduction to algebraic topology is suitable for a number of topology courses.
This self-contained introduction to algebraic topology is suitable for a number of topology courses. It consists of about one quarter 'general topology' (without its usual pathologies) and three quarters 'algebraic topology' (centred around the fundamental group, a readily grasped topic which gives a good idea of what algebraic topology is). The book has emerged from courses given at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne to senior undergraduates and beginning postgraduates.

1. What is algebraic topology? A topological space X is a set in which there is a notion of nearness of points.
Before that, the topologists, including me, thought that it would be impossible to squeeze a serious introduction to al-gebraic topology into a one quarter course, but we were overruled by the analysts and algebraists, who felt that it was unacceptable for graduate students to obtain their PhDs without having some contact with algebraic topology.
It has been written at a level which will enable the reader to use it for self-study as well as a course book. The approach is leisurely and a geometric flavour is evident throughout. The many illustrations and over 350 exercises will prove invaluable as a teaching aid.
