First printed in 1967, this book has been essential reading for aspiring algebraic number theorists for more than fifty years. It contains the lecture notes from an instructional conference held in Brighton in 1965, which was a milestone event that introduced class field theory as a standard tool of mathematics. There are landmark contributions from Serre and Tate. The book is a standard text for taught courses in algebraic number theory. This Second Edition includes a valuable list of errata compiled by mathematicians who have read and used the text over the years.
