This book connects logic with algebra. It covers universal logic and the question of what logic is as well as universal algebraic logic and duality theories between the world of logics and the world of algebra. It also discusses algebraic logic proper including algebras of relations of various ranks, Tarski's cylindric algebras, relation algebras, Halmos' polyadic algebras and other kinds of algebras of logic.
