First Edition. there is no damage to describe, even though the book is second-hand.Although today's mathematical research community takes of international character very much for granted, this "global nature" is relatively recent, having evolved over a period of 150 years roughly. – until now the evolution of mathematics from being centred on a collection of disparate national communities to be characterised by an international group of scholars for whom the goal of mathematical research and cooperation transcended national boundaries. Until now, this evolution has been largely overlooked by historians and mathematicians alike. This book addresses the issue by bringing together essays by 20 experts in the history of mathematics who investigated the Genesis of today's international mathematical community. – Paraphrasing the rear panel.
