Abstract: Simple elementary construction of the genus field $ {K^ * }$ (= maximal abelian subfield of the Hilbert class field) of any abelian number field $ K$ is given without using class field theory. When $ K$ is of type $ (l, \ldots ,l)$ with $ l$ prime, the construction is more explicit. These results contain some former results and show that the main result in [8] has mistakes.
