Default Text for computational algebraic number theory?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a text on this subject? I've realized that I'm not going to be able to implement an NFS square root (or understand NFS, for that matter) without understanding this subject better.

There's Cohen's 'A Course In Computational Algebraic Number Theory', but I'm concerned that it's a bit dated by now. I'd prefer something more modern, that can deal with the algorithms used by latter-day NFS. It doesn't have to be a basic text either, I'll just keep rereading it until I understand :)

Thanks,
jasonp
