To cover integration from Hippocrates and Archimedes to Henstock, Kurzweil, nonstandard methods, and Feynman on a few hundred pages must appear a next to impossible task. This remarkable book is successful in several respects. It may be used as an encyclopedia of the history of integration, of its main figures and its major developments. It shows why and how new ideas and conceptions entered the scene. With profound understanding of history it illuminates a significant subject from a present day point of view. Much space is given to quotations, in the original languages if Latin, English, French, German or Italian, both from original sources and from reliable secondary texts. All of the 1200 titles of the carefully composed bibliography are referred to in the main text. (Zentralblatt)
