Rez. in: Mathematical intelligencer 27(2005) no.2, S.85-88 (H. Bellosta): "This book is meant as a supplement to the Encyclopaedia of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine in Non-Western Cultures (l,auwer Academic Publishers, 1997) and is aimed at a more scholarly audience; the aim is to explore the same topics in greater depth. The book is divided into two parts: the authors of the six essays in the first section try to define the field of ethnomathematics and to make a general study of the connection between mathematics and culture as well as the variability of the concept of rationality, while the second part is devoted to the description of fifteen individual cultures and their mathematics in various "non Euro-American" areas: the Middle East, America (native cultures), the Pacific and Australia, Africa, and the Far East."
