I did a search on MAA Reviews ( ) for books published since 2005. It found 46 books, but most are not textbooks. (Using advanced search, +algebra -linear in title, pub date after 2005, subject algebra.) Many of the ones listed above appear and have reviews that might be helpful. Not mentioned above are:

At UMass, the general increase in graduate student preparation has finally made it possible to do some serious group representation theory in the course taught here. Whatever the student eventually does, in pure or applied math, that subject has the big advantage of being a meeting place for many different kinds of ideas. Not just a deducing of narrow facts from narrow axions, as in some traditional branches of algebra.
In group theory, a branch of abstract algebra in pure mathematics, a cyclic group or monogenous group is a group, denoted Cn, that is generated by a single element. That is, it is a set of invertible elements with a single associative binary operation, and it contains an element g such that every other element of the group may be obtained by repeatedly applying the group operation to g or its inverse. Each element can be written as an integer power of g in multiplicative notation, or as an integer multiple of g in additive notation. This element g is called a generator of the group.
In classical two-valued logic there is a three way relationship among formal systems, Boolean algebras and set theory. In the case of infinite-valued logic we have a similar relationship among formal systems, MV-algebras and what is called Bold fuzzy set theory. The relationship, in the latter case, between formal systems and MV-algebras has been known for many years while the relationship between MV-algebras and fuzzy set theory has hardly been studied. This is not surprising. MV-algebras were invented by C. C. Chang  in order to provide an algebraic proof of the completeness theorem of the infinitevalued logic of Lukasiewicz and Tarski. Having served this purpose (see ), the study of these algebras has been minimal, see for example , . Fuzzy set theory was also being born around the same time and only in recent years has its connection with infinite-valued logic been made, see e.g. , , . It seems appropriate then, to take a further look at the structure of MV-algebras and their relation to fuzzy set theory.
Simulated annealing is a popular local search meta-heuristic used to address discrete and, to a lesser extent, continuous optimization problems. The key feature of simulated annealing is that it provides a means to escape local optima by allowing hill-climbing moves (i.e., moves which worsen the objective function value) in hopes of finding a global optimum. A brief history of simulated annealing is presented, including a review of its application to discrete and continuous optimization problems. Convergence theory for simulated annealing is reviewed, as well as recent advances in the analysis of finite time performance. Other local search algorithms are discussed in terms of their relationship to simulated annealing. The chapter also presents practical guidelines for the implementation of simulated annealing in terms of cooling schedules, neighborhood functions, and appropriate applications.
