Casting aside the usual Eurocentric theories about the origins of mathematics, the authors investigate Vedic texts which originated in ancient India. Aryabhatta, Sulvastrus, and Bhaskaracharya are among the Sanskrit-speaking theoreticians, whose astronomical works contributed to the ancient body of mathematics, preceding the Greeks. This book deals with some of the chronological difficulties in tracing the history of mathematics, as well as the reasons for the decay in the ancient Vedic civilization.

Review:

...it is an eye-opener and it challenges the very method of fixing persons and incidents chronologically... (Mathematical Reviews)

The book provides a fascinating account of the origin of mathematics and establishes convincingly that mathematics originated from India, and not from Greece, around 3000 BC. (Ganita Bharati)
