Wedderburn's theorem

It would be instructive to have a look on a new proof of Wedderburn Theorem (Any finite division ring is commutative), proof which I published in Amer. Math. Monthly (October 2003, by Nicolas Lichiardopol). W. Narkiewicz said me that is the most beautefull proof.

I don' think many people have electronic access to 2003 monthly.

By the way, there's a book
"Proofs of the book"
(ref to Erdos idea)

where it's proved that theorem only using elementary concepts
(some basics about group actions, roots of unity, etc)
G -----> H G
p \ /_ ----- ~ f(G)
\ / f ker f
G/ker f
