New York 1991 Trade Paperback Second Edition Fine 6" X 9" 715 Pages Indexed. Very minor wear to cover corners and edges. Interior text pages are flawless. The authors distill thousands of years of m ...show moreathematics into this fascinating chronicle. From the Greeks to Godel, the mathematics is brilliant; the cast of characters is distinguished; the ebb and flow of ideas is everywhere evident. And, while tracing the development of European mathematics, the authors do not overlook the contributions of Chinese, Indian, and Arabic civilizations.

Updated and expanded, it now offers broadened coverage of 20th century advances in probability and computers, and updated references to further reading. A feature that will be of interest ot every reader is an appendix containing an extensive chronological tale of mathematics and general historical developments. ...show less
