The theory of algebras, rings, and modules is one of the fundamental domains of modern mathematics. General algebra, more specifically non-commutative algebra, is poised for major advances in the twenty-first century (together with and in interaction with combinatorics), just as topology, analysis, and probability experienced in the twentieth century. This volume is a continuation and an in-depth study, stressing the non-commutative nature of the first two volumes of Algebras, Rings and Modules by M. Hazewinkel, N. Gubareni, and V. V. Kirichenko. It is largely independent of the other volumes. The relevant constructions and results from earlier volumes have been presented in this volume.
