 Summary
 "An Episodic History of Mathematics delivers a series of snapshots of mathematics and mathematicians from ancient times to the twentieth century. Giving readers a sense of mathematical culture and history, the book also acquaints readers with the nature and techniques of mathematics via exercises. It introduces the genesis of key mathematical concepts. For example, while Krantz does not get into the intricate mathematical details of Andrew Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem, he does describe some of the streams of thought that posed the problem and led to its solution. The focus in this text, moreover, is on doing  getting involved with the mathematics and solving problems. Every chapter ends with a detailed problem set that will provide students with avenues for exploration and entry into the subject. It recounts the history of mathematics; offers broad coverage of the various schools of mathematical thought to give readers a wider understanding of mathematics; and includes exercises to help readers engage with the text and gain a deeper understanding of the material."Publisher's description
