Abstract: Let F be a number field and K a cyclic extension of degree l over F, where l is a rational prime. The l-class group of K is analyzed as a $ {\operatorname{Gal}}(K/F)$-module in the case where the l-class group of F is trivial. The resulting structure theorem is used to compute the structure of the 3-class groups of certain cyclic cubic fields that are discussed in a paper of D. Shanks.
