Summary
"Time to meet an increase in the lives of mathematicians, this volume covers over 300 of them, from antiquity to the present. Many contemporary African-American, Asian-American, and Hispanic-American women are included. The alphabetically arranged entries contain a heading with name, birth and death dates, field of specialization, nationality, and ethnicity when applicable, as well as a picture when possible. An accompanying essay describes the life and significant contribution of the person to the field of mathematics with suggestions for further information, which include books, periodicals, documentaries, and Web sites. The list of milestones in mathematics begins at 50,000 BC with evidence of primitve counting and continues until the present."--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Titles", American Libraries, May 1999.
