This book is intended as a textbook for a first-year graduate course on algebraic topology, with as strong flavoring in smooth manifold theory. Starting with general topology, it discusses differentiable manifolds, cohomology, products and duality, the fundamental group, homology theory, and homotopy theory. It covers most of the topics all topologists will want students to see, including surfaces, Lie groups and fibre bundle theory.
