As in the previous edition, the purpose of this text is to introduce mathematical techniques to economics students. Through a complete integration of mathematics and economics along with a very patient exposition, the author attempts to maintain the emphasis on economics. Economic topics of equilibrium analysis, comparative-static analysis, economic dynamics and optimization are covered using mathematical techniques such as matrix algebra, differential equations, convex sets and mathematical programming in their solution. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Overall it covers most of the math required in standard economic courses and let you to develop a solid base that you can use to further study individual topics of interest.
A side but not less important note: even if this is a "cheap" international edition the editing is good: clear graphic, quality paper, nice layout..
Edited: While reading this book (I'm now at ch. 11) I am compiling an errata of the fourth edition: https://booksforum.org/content/fundamental-methods-mathematical-economics (tab "discussions", type "errata"). I have to say that still errors are very rare.. that's the good of studying a book that it's out from over 40 years...
If you are planning to study economics at a post graduate level and you don't have a first degree in mathematics then take the time to read this book before you start!
