This book is concerned with non-European contributions to the development of mathematics. It argues that many of these contributions have been unjustly neglected and suggests some reasons for this neglect. There are sections on American and African mathematicians, detailed examinations of Indian, Chinese and Arab mathematics, and on the early mathematicians of Egypt and Mesopotamia. The book aims to be both comprehensive and accessible to those who have only a school background in mathematics.
