In August 1989, more than 700 Soviet algebraists and more than 200
foreign mathematicians convened in Novosibirsk in the former Soviet Union for
the International Conference on Algebra. Dedicated to the memory of A. I.
Mal‴cev, the great Russian algebraist and logician, the conference
marked the first time since the International Congress of Mathematicians was
held in Moscow in 1966 that Soviet algebraists could meet with a large number
of their foreign colleagues. This volume contains the proceedings from this
historic conference. Some of the Soviet contributions to this volume are not
easily available from other sources.

Some of the major figures in the field, including P. M. Cohn, P. Gabriel, N.
Jacobson, E. R. Kolchin, and V. Platonov, contributbed to this volume. The
papers span a broad range of areas including groups, Lie algebras, associative
and nonassociative rings, fields and skew fields, differential algebra,
universal algebra, categories, combinatorics, logic, algebraic geometry,
geometry, topology, and mathematical physics.
