The usual definition of primeness for near-rings does not lead to a Kurosh-Amitsur radical class for zerosymmetric near-rings (cf. Kaarli and Kriis[5]). In this paper, we define equiprime near-rings, which are another generalization of primeness in rings. Various results are proved, amongst others, for zerosymmetric near-rings: If N is a near-ring and A ◃ B ◃ N such that B/A is equiprime, then A ◃ N. We define [formula omitted]. Then P* is a Kurosh-Amitsur radical for which [formula omitted] holds for all ideals I of N. Moreover, [formula omitted], where I3, is the Jacobson-type radical which was introduced by Holcombe, with equality if N has the descending chain condition on N-sub-groups.
