Summary
"Through the prism of gender, this volume explores the contrasting cultures and material and social practices of mathematics and science in the decades surrounding 100. It is demonstrated that gender, far from being a peripheral issue, is central to understanding the development of both pure and practical disciplines at this time"--Provided by publisher
