Reviews

"An equal to its companion volume, The Mathematics of Egypt, Mesopotamia, China, India, and Islam: A Sourcebook this scholarly effort fills a noticeable void... Any individual who enjoys mathematics will learn a great amount about mathematical history in a context that is often not discussed or covered."--Choice "[A] very deep and detailed dive into the mathematics of the medieval era."--Charles Ashbacher, MAA Reviews
