Morris Kline is at New York University (Emeritus).Review:
"[Kline] has produced in this enormous book what must be the definitive history of mathematical thought. Clearly written and handsomely produced.... [It makes] this abstract discipline come alive with a sense of organic growth; we see the personalities, the societies, the false starts, and the
patient building up of a body of knowledge now so complex that it overwhelms the layman.... For anyone with a background and interest in mathematics it is an important event--probably the most comprehensive account of mathematical history we have yet had."--Saturday Review
"This is without doubt a book which should be in the library of every institution where mathematics is taught."--Economist
"The consistently high quality of presentation, the accuracy, the readable style, and the stress on the conceptual development of mathematics make this volume a most desirable reference."--Choice
