A friend of mine, who sometimes moonlights as an adjunct at a US
university, is looking for a book in the spirit of a popularizing
mathematics. In order to specify a frame of reference, the genre
should loosely be similar to John Allen Paulos' "Beyond Numeracy" but
instead with a Marxist or Left political disposition governing the
text and selection of topics. I believe that he wishes to use such a
book for an undergraduate course in basic quantitative literacy.
Perhaps subscribers to the list might have ideas. Much obliged in
advance for recommendations.
