Uta C. Merzbach and Carl B. Boyer. xix. book is to present the history of mathematics with fidelity, not only to mathematical structure and exactitude, but also to historical perspective and detail. It would be folly, in a book of this scope, to expect that every date, as well as every decimal point, is correct.

The first chapter begins with the early efforts to count items and make a record of that information. The concept of counting and records of the items formed introduced a new way of thinking. Early number systems were shortly joined by spatial measurements.

Boyer and Merzbach distill thousands of years of mathematics 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. Without doubt, this is-and will long remain-a classic one-volume history of mathematics and mathematicians who create it.
