    Scrawled as an aside in the margin of Fermat's copy of Diophantus' Arithmetica lies the original formulation of mathematics' most famous enigma: Fermat's last theorem. For 350 years mathematicians struggled with the theorem until, on the 19th of September 1994, Andrew Wiles presented a proof." — From the back cover

    "Starting in the fall of 1986, I combined my interests in number theory and history by teaching a one-year course in number theory from a historical prospective. The course used historical highlights to show the development of various topics, and I included some discussion about the lives of famous number theorists. My lecture notes for the course turned into a more formal set of notes, which turned into this book. Both the spirit and organization of material in the book remain those of my original lectures." — Jay R. Goldman, author, in the Preface
