S. Bloch on Milne's Étale cohomology
A long time ago, Spencer Bloch wrote a review of James Milne's Étale cohomology for the Bulletin of AMS which can freely be obtained from the AMS web site. This review explains why one should study étale cohomology, how it grew up, and discusses some aspects of Milne's book. It features an unusual combination of humor and seriousness. Reading highly recommended once you have 15 minutes free!
