Description: 1 How long is the coast of Britain?

2 How many colors are necessary to color in any map so that no two adjacent regions share the same color?

3 How can one (mathematically) tell a reef knot from a granny knot?

These questions seem simple enough, yet attempting to answer them in proper mathematical terms has sparked some mind-bending and often revolutionary developments in the world of mathematics. In answering these and other questions, Keith Devlin, a research mathematician and popular commentator on mathematical topics, offers a nontechnical guided tour of the significant developments in the field of mathematics since 1960 -- revised and enlarged to encompass the dramatic advances of the 1980s and 1990s.
