A great cheap book in Dover paperback for graduate students is John Rose's A Course In Group Theory. This was one of the first books to extensively couch group theory in the language of group actions and it's still one of the best to do that. It covers everything in group theory that doesn't require representation theory. This book is a unique survey of the whole field of modular representation theory of finite groups. The main topics are block theory and module theory of group representations, including blocks with cyclic defect groups, symmetric groups, groups of Lie type, local-global conjectures.

In mathematics and abstract algebra, group theory studies the algebraic structures known as concept of a group is central to abstract algebra: other well-known algebraic structures, such as rings, fields, and vector spaces, can all be seen as groups endowed with additional operations and recur throughout mathematics, and the methods of group theory have .
