The focus in this book is on projective geometry and its roots in 'classical geometry', a pursuit which the authors feel has been largely neglected in the abstract-oriented mathematics of the twentieth century. Dorwart and Berger quickly lead into a discussion of the geometry of incidence, tracing its formulation from Euclid through David Hilbert. The reader is expected to do much of the mathematics within, and the book will be suitable for anybody familiar with only a little geometry.Read more
