Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Mathematics began in India about 2700 BC, say Lakshmikantham (mathematics. Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne, Florida) and Leela (mathematics, State U. of New York-Geneseo). Only Eurocentric thinking and deliberate mistranslation of ancient texts have pushed Indian achievements forward to make them appear to post-date those of the Greeks.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
