Katz's text A History of Mathematics; An Introduction was originally published in 1993; this briefer version allows time enough to address 20th-century topics before a one-semester course is over. Biographical and ethnomathematics coverage have been cut, and recent discoveries have been included. A working knowledge of one year of calculus is enough background for most of the book, although the later chapters are a bit more demanding. Katz is affiliated with the U. of the District of Columbia. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
