This is the first comprehensive International Handbook on the History of Mathematics Education, covering a wide spectrum of epochs and civilizations, countries and cultures. Until now, much of the research into the rich and varied history of mathematics education has remained inaccessible to the vast majority of scholars, not least because it has been written in the language, and for readers, of an individual country. And yet a historical overview, however brief, has become an indispensable element of nearly every dissertation and scholarly article. This handbook provides, for the first time, a comprehensive and systematic aid for researchers around the world in finding the information they need about historical developments in mathematics education, not only in their own countries, but globally as well. 

Although written primarily for mathematics educators, this handbook will also be of interest to researchers of the history of education in general, as well as specialists in cultural and even social history.

Review:

“If you are interested in mathematics education, this book provides a wealth of information. From the teaching of mathematics in antiquity to modern pedagogical practices across international borders, the book presents a compendium of the history of mathematics teaching. ... it is thoroughly referenced the reader is also led to many additional resources. ... As a reference book, this text will be valuable.” (Mindy Capaldi, MAA Reviews, maa.org, January, 2016)

“The Handbook on the history of mathematics education ... is a milestone in the historiography of mathematics education. ... The wealth of information that could enable the initiation of new research projects, and the authority of the contributors, are both superb. The book therefore, comes highly recommended; I will certainly be revisiting it many times over. It is a powerful and comprehensive introduction to the field and a must for any serious scholar of this area of intellectual history.” (Snezana Lawrence, Educational Studies in Mathematics, Vol. 92, 2016)
