Written by one of the foremost experts in the field, The History of Mathematics: A Brief Course is substantially revised in the second edition. This acclaimed text-now reorganized topically rather than geographically-begins with first applications of counting and numbers in the ancient world, and continues with discussions of geometry, algebra, analysis, probability, logic, and more. Discussions of women in the history of mathematics make this a very thorough, inclusive resource.
