Although all the history of mathematics from its dawn to about 1950 and written in a short book is something very difficult to realize ( if not impossible ), I very reccomend this beautiful book, where the history of mathematics is well explained in terms of main thinking lines. Furthermore this book is rich of interesting anecdotes and details on personal and accademic relations among the greatest mathematicians of all time.

Dirk Jan Struik (September 30, 1894 – October 21, 2000) was a Dutch born American (since 1934) mathematician, historian of mathematics and Marxian theoretician who spent most of his life in the . Dirk Jan Struik was born in 1894 in Rotterdam, Netherlands, as a teacher's son. He attended the Hogereburgerschool (HBS) over there. It was in this school that he was first introduced to left-wing politics and socialism by one of his teachers, called Mister van Dam.

FREE for a limited time. A Concise History of Mathematics. It was possible to condense this history into a book of less than three hundred pages only by subjecting ourselves to strict discipline, sketching the unfolding of a few main ideas and minimizing reference to other developments. Bibliographical details had to be restricted to an outline; many relatively important authors-Roberval, Lambert, Schwarz-had to be bypassed. Perhaps the most crippling restriction was the insufficient reference to the general cultural and sociological atmosphere in which the mathematics of a period matured-or was stifled.

It started out ok, but the last few chapters are just a barrage of names and subjects with no real look at the underlying ideas. The Kindle edition also has problems with some of the formatting, turning exponents into footnotes.

This book is best suited for readers with a good knowledge of the various fields of mathematics. It does not expound any technical details, but refers to mathematical results with which one should already be acquainted. The author himself was a mathematician who researched the history of mathematics. The result was the material in this book that contains the names of numerous mathematicians and scientists, and their publications with Latin, French, and German titles. Most of the foreign language titles and quotes have English translation in the footnotes.

Interesting; different sections may be read independently; so nice that many of these classics are now in ebook form

A little hard to follow if you're not prepared for the terminology. But, definitely a cool read. Be warned - this author does not use terms in the manner you would normally expect for modern vernacular.

When I was student ( from elementary school to university level ), I was never taught of history of mathematics ( at least in an organized and formalized way,sometimes there were references to singular and surprising anecdote as Gauss child summing up the first 100 natural numbers in few seconds). I think this is a lack ( probably it is not possible to teach everything in the already rich school program ) of the educational system. For this reason , enjoying mathematics ( especially the simplest one ), I was looking for something to explain and describe how the mathematical thinking developped with time. At the same time, I did not have much time, so I thought from the title that this book was the right one for my needs. Although all the history of mathematics from its dawn to about 1950 and written in a short book is something very difficult to realize ( if not impossible ), I very reccomend this beautiful book, where the history of mathematics is well explained in terms of main thinking lines. Furthermore this book is rich of interesting anecdotes and details on personal and accademic relations among the greatest mathematicians of all time.

I rather enjoyed reading this Dover classic on mathematics.Yet,there were some problems with the book.It's a vast topic,that's condensed into a rather small book.The author,Dirk J. Struik,did a wonderful job explaining the great giants of global historical mathematics.Now,if you're looking for the math geniuses of the twentith century,however,you'll miss them here.There is an excellent bibliograghy and many important basic formulas presented.The sketch portraits and rare photograghs add an insightful picture of the character of these esteemed numerologists.After reading this text,I found myself wanting to research more about their contributions to mathematics.Eventhough,i may be more advanced at understanding higher math concepts.This book presents a clear philosophical foundation,often skipped by math instructors today,because of time considerations. So, this book is the ideal text for any fellow math neophyte,who may cringe at the broad scope of classical mathematics.

Arrived quickly and product was as described
The equations do not reproduce well on my Kindle (a little better on my computer Kindle reader); a big minus. Also, it is more of a history of mathematicians and their publications than it is a history of mathematics. It contains very little information on mathematical concepts themselves, another big minus.
