#### Mathematicians under the Nazis

Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 39.95Contrary to popular belief--and despite the expulsion, emigration, or death of many German mathematicians--substantial mathematics was produced in Germany during 1933-1945. In this landmark social history of the mathematics community in Nazi Germany, Sanford Segal examines how the Nazi years affected the personal and academic lives of those German... more...

#### A Primer of Multivariate Statistics

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95Drawing upon more than 30 years of experience in working with statistics, Dr. Richard J. Harris has updated A Primer of Multivariate Statistics to provide a model of balance between how-to and why.
