[Kline] has produced in this enormous book what must be the definitive history of mathematical thought. Clearly written and handsomely produced.... [It makes] this abstract discipline come alive with a sense of organic growth; we see the personalities, the societies, the false starts, and the patient building up of a body of knowledge now so complex that it overwhelms the layman.... For anyone with a background and interest in mathematics it is an important event (probably the most comprehensive account of mathematical history we have yet had.)
This is without doubt a book which should be in the library of every institution where mathematics is taught. (Economist)
The consistently high quality of presentation, the accuracy, the readable style, and the stress on the conceptual development of mathematics make this volume a most desirable reference. (Choice)
The major creations and developments in mathematics from the beginnings in Babylonia and Egypt through the first few decades of the twentieth century are presented with clarity and precision in this comprehensive historical study.
