"This Very Short Introduction explores the rich historical and cultural diversity of mathematical practice, ranging from the distant past to the present | This is the first of the the three i've read so far and let me tell you it's absolutely terrible |

It quickly dispels several myths about mathematics that I may have benefited from when I was starting graduate school alas this book was not published at that point | ", but it's only one sentence, surely it can't describe the whole book |

Historian Jacqueline Stedall shows that mathematical ideas are far from being fixed, but are adapted and changed by their passage across periods and cultures.

- If you hope to learn the IDEAS of mathematics, how they evolved, what lead to those discoveries and so on and don't care about learning 20 different names of not so well known mathematicians and their lives, then this book is not for you

I have a tendency to finish all books that i start irregardless of how bad they are so i was determined to finish it | I can't remember the last time a book let me down so badly |

The book illuminates some of the varied contexts in which people have learned, used, and handed on mathematics, drawing on fascinating case studies from a range of times and places, including early imperial China, the medieval Islamic world, and nineteenth-century Britain.

By drawing out some common threads, Stedall provides an introduction not only to the mathematics of the past but to the history of mathematics as a modern academic discipline |

The emphasis on this book is on the history as opposed to the mathematics of the history of mathematics.
