Summary
What difference do individuals make to history? Are we all swept up in the great forces like industrialisation or globalisation that change the world? Clearly not, real people - leaders in particular - and the decisions that they make change our lives irrevocably - whether in deciding to go to war or not, decisive tactical decisions made in the heat of battle, or changing the economic fortunes of countries. So if people make a difference in history, what is the role of personality? What difference did the characters of, for example, Nixon, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Montaigne or Stalin make? This book interrogates the past to ask very big questions about the role of individuals and their behaviour
