Re: suggestions for books/authors (Fundamental Concepts Of Mathematics )

One general reference I have enjoyed greatly is the 3-volume set:

Fundamentals of Mathematics, Benke, Bachmann et. al. (MIT press, translated from the German).

The 3 volumes are as follows:

Volume I:

Foundations of Mathematics
The Real Number System and Algebra

Volume II:


Volume III:


I think you would find Volume I especially helpful. It's not terribly in-depth, but it gives a good idea of the scope and power of the various "basic" mathematics used at the college level.
