About this item

Hill recounts life in the US military during the Vietnam War and then as a mathematician, emphasizing how mathematics was the ambitious dream that got him through his military years and how Army Ranger training helped him survive both the PhD gauntlet in Berkeley and cut-throat academic politics much later. Among his chapters are: day of handshakes, out of the gates, return to reason, the Fulbright interlude, the apprenticeship, the global math guild, the Penn State syndrome, and permanent sabbatical.
