Format: Paperback
As the title indicates, this book is about research mathematics in the US, so there is no attention to mathematics below graduate work. John Hopkins and the University of Chicago get the most attention, with Sylvester at Hopkins and Moore at Chicago. Outside the US, Felix Klein is the focus. The book is written for a specialized interest and assumes more than a casual curiosity about the period.
