200, [2] pages, well illustrated, diagrams, cloth, dj, very good. From the dust jacket: "In this lucid, wide-ranging book, Petr Beckmann traces the perilous journey of pi - the little number with huge implications for advanced mathematical functions - from its Babylonian creation to its use by the Greeks in measuring the earth to some medieval attempts to eradicate those who pursued it to its crucial role in modern computation. Beckmann reveals this journey to be nothing less than a mirror of human history. He tells of the time when pi made progress, and also when it was stifled by militarism and religious fanaticism.

In an interview for the book Twentieth Century Authors, Hogden stated: "I like Scandanavians, skiing, swimming and socialists who realize it is our business to promote social progress by peaceful methods. I dislike football, economists, eugenicists, Fascists, Stalinists, and Scottish conservatives. I think that sex is necessary and bankers are not". "
