From the Publisher:

HISTORICAL EMPHASIS: The author has carefully placed the topics of number theory within the larger historical frame of mathematical development. Historical remarks are woven throughout the text along with theory, bringing out the point that number theory is developed piece by piece, with the work of each individual contributor built upon the research of many others. A student who is aware of how people of genius found their way slowly through the creative process may be less likely to be discouraged by his or her own difficulty with the subject.
EXTENSIVE EXERCISE SETS: More than 750 problems are an integral part of the text and range in difficulty from the purely mechanical to challenging theoretical questions. The computational exercises develop basic techniques and test understanding of concepts, while those of a theoretical nature give practice in constructing proofs.
NEW SECTIONS: Two new sections have been added to this edition: Section 6.4, An Application to the Calendar and Section 15.3, An Application to Factoring: Remote Coin-Flipping. Section 6.4 uses congruence theory to determine the day of the week on which a given date falls. Section 15.3 describes a number-theoretic protocol for flipping a fair coin over the telephone.
ADDITIONAL TOPIC COVERAGE: Additional topic coverage in this edition includes coverage of the quadratic sieve method with the factorization algorithms of Section 15.2. The material on Pell's equation has been expanded and clarified. A treatment of polyalphabetic ciphers, focusing on Hill's cipher, now appears in the section devoted to secrecy systems.
MODERN ADVANCES IN NUMBER THEORY: The resolution of certain challenging conjectures such as the confirmation of the composite nature of the Fermat number F24 is discussed in this edition, emphasizing the vitality of number theory as an area of research mathematics. In addition, certain numerical information has been updated in light of the latest finding.
