as a tex file,
as a dvi file,
as a ps file,

Here are some reviews of the book by F. Gouvea for
H. Opolka for Zentralblatt,
Charles Helou for MathSciNet,
D.V. Feldman for
Choice Reviews online,
N. Schappacher for the Semesterberichte,
P. Shiu for the Math. Gazette,
and S. Raghavan for Ganita-Bharati, a Bulletin
of the Indian Society for History of Mathematics.
The combined bibliography can be found
with references to the Mathematical Reviews, the Zentralblatt
and the Jahrbuch. Moreover, I have a list of published proofs
of the Quadratic Reciprocity Law.
If your browser supports frames, I suggest you try the
framed version. Here's a draft for
a similar list of proofs of the
Quartic Reciprocity Law.
Michael Berg has published a book on
The Fourier-Analytic Proof of Quadratic Reciprocity
