can be described as a collection of critical historical essays dealing with a large variety of mathematical disciplines and issues, and intended for a broad audience¿ we know of no book on mathematics and its history that covers half as much nonstandard material. Even when dealing with standard material, Stillwell manages to dramatize it and to make it worth rethinking. In short, his book is a splendid addition to the genre of works that build royal roads to mathematical culture for the many. Mathematical Intelligencer).

John Colin Stillwell (born 1942) is an Australian mathematician on the faculties of the University of San Francisco and Monash University. He was born in Melbourne, Australia and lived there until he went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was born in Melbourne, Australia and lived there until he went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his doctorate. He received his PhD from MIT in 1970, working under Hartley Rogers, Jr who had himself worked under Alonzo Church From 1970 until 2001 he taught at Monash University back in Australia and in 2002 began teaching in San Francisco.

Pickover . Nevertheless, there are copious references to original sources, and readers wishing to explore the classics for themselves will find it a useful guide.

The Math Book: From Pythagoras to the 57th Dimension, 250 Milestones in the History of Mathematics. An advantage of the unified approach is that it ties up loose ends and fills gaps in the standard undergraduate curriculum.

John Stillwell is a professor of mathematics at the University of San Francisco. He is also an accomplished author, having published several books with Springer, including The Four Pillars of Geometry; Elements of Algebra; Numbers and Geometry; and many more. p. vii) In that regard it succeeds admirably. Mathematics and its History is a joy to read. The writing is clear, concise and inviting.

This book presents, for the first time in English, the papers of Beltrami, Klein, and Poincare that brought hyperbolic geometry into the mainstream of mathematics. A recognition of Beltrami comparable to that given the pioneering works of Bolyai and Labachevsky seems long overdue - not only because Beltrami rescued hyperbolic geometry from oblivion by proving it to be logically consistent, but because he gave it a concrete meaning (a model) that made hyperbolic geometry part of ordinary mathematics. The models subsequently discovered by Klein and Poincare brought hyperbolic geometry even further down to earth and paved the way for the current explosion of activity in low-dimensional geometry and topology. By placing the works of these three mathematicians side by side and providing commentaries, this book gives the student, historian, or professional geometer a bird's-eye view of one of the great episodes in mathematics. The unified setting and historical context reveal the insights of Beltrami, Klein, and Poincare in their full brilliance.
