The purpose of the book is to take stock of the situation concerning Algebra via Category Theory in the last fifteen years, where the new and synthetic notions of Mal'cev, protomodular, homological and semi-abelian categories emerged. These notions force attention on the fibration of points and allow a unified treatment

Survey and research papers in this volume are based on talks given at a workshop held at The Fields Institute for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, ON, Canada). It provides an up-to-date account by leading researchers on the many current connections among Galois theories, Hopf algebras, and semiabelian categories.
