From the Back Cover:

Mathematics

"Boyer and Merzbach distill thousands of years of mathematics into this fascinating chronicle. From the Greeks to Gödel, the mathematics is brilliant; the cast of characters is distinguished; the ebb and flow of ideas is everywhere evident. ... Without doubt, this is--and will long remain--a classic one- volume history of mathematics and mathematicians who create it."
--William Dunham, author of Journey Through Genius: The Great Theorems of Mathematics

"Both readable and scholarly ... a fine introduction to the topic."
--J. David Bolter, author of Turing's Man

"When we read a book like A History of Mathematics, we get the picture of a mounting structure, ever taller and broader and more beautiful and magnificent and with a foundation, moreover, that is as untainted and as functional now as it was when Thales worked out the first geometrical theorems nearly twenty-six centuries ago."
--Isaac Asimov (from the Foreword)

For more than forty years, A History of Mathematics has been the reference of choice for those looking to learn about the fascinating history of humankind's relationship with numbers, shapes, and patterns. This revised edition features up-to-date coverage of topics such as Fermat's Last Theorem and the Poincaré conjecture, in addition to recent advances in areas such as finite group theory and computer-aided proofs.

Whether you're interested in the age of Plato and Aristotle or Poincaré and Hilbert, whether you want to know more about the Pythagorean theorem or the golden mean, A History of Mathematics is an essential reference that will help you explore the incredible history of mathematics and the men and women who created it.
