Prior to writing this book, Jeff Suzuki wrote A History of Mathematics, published in 2002. The purpose of his Mathematics in Historical Context is to provide the historical, non-mathematical context for a study of the history of mathematics. It is a concise, clearly written synopsis of suitable portions (mostly political) of western and eastern history, and includes brief discussions of the mathematicians and mathematics of each period. This is not another "History of Mathematics" even though it contains within it the outlines of such a history

Prior to writing this book, Jeff Suzuki wrote A History of Mathematics, published in 2002. The purpose of his Mathematics in Historical Context is to provide the historical, non-mathematical context for a study of the history of mathematics. It is a concise, clearly written synopsis of suitable portions (mostly political) of western and eastern history, and includes brief discussions of the mathematicians and mathematics of each period. Be forewarned. This is not another "History of Mathematics" even though it contains within it the outlines of such a history. As Suzuki says, it is "part mathematics, part mathematical biography, and part history." (p. vii)

Some readers are going to complain there isn't enough mathematics in the book and others will complain that the historical contexts that are given are not rich enough in science, philosophy, social history, politics, or in some other topic. Certainly there is room for all of that in the idea of a book with a title like this has, but a more comprehensive history would be all that more lengthy, and no doubt there would then be those who'd complain the book was too long, overreaching, and contained more "context" than mathematics. Suzuki's book is balanced and doesn't lose sight of its purpose as a book for readers interested specifically in the history of mathematics. It supplements the more detailed mathematical histories and makes no pretense to being anything else.

I haven't seen his History of Mathematics, and so can't compare the two books. Suzuki has a tight, clear, and precise style of writing. If his History is written in the same style, it's likely to be first-rate.

I only needed this book for school so I don't have much to say. It has a lot of good info if you are into mathematics!
