Review:

'Brilliant: a most impressive scientific work [bearing] three remarkable assets: the work leads from the beginning of human history to the middle of the twentieth century and through all fields of mathematics including its applications. Stylistically, it combines the content of an encyclopaedia with the chronology of narrative. Finally, the work is based on an impressive use of critically analyzed literature One secures instruction and insight in equal measure, and is shown the interrelation of all the historical developments in mathematics.' PROFESSOR HANS WUSSING, University of Leipzig. 'A useful book to have around for those seriously interested in the development of mathematics.' New Scientist
