Class field theory classifies abelian extensions of local and global fields in terms of groups constructed from the base. We shall survey the main results of class field theory for number fields and function fields alike. The goal of these introductory lectures is to prepare the ground for the study of explicit class field theory in the function field case, via Drinfeld modules. I will talk for the first 2 or 3 times.
