Summary
The acclaimed historian gives her own personal selection of the great figures of the past who have changed the course of history and even directed the currents of their times -- sometimes with huge consequences, as in the cases of Hitler, Stalin, and Thatcher. Then there are those like Samuel de Champlain: the dreamers, explorers, or adventurers who stand out in history for who they were as much as for what they did. Finally, there are the observers, such as Michel de Montaigne, who kept the notes and diaries that bring the past to life for us. "History's People" is about the important and complex relationship between biography and history, individuals and their times, and the transformative moments that have shaped the world today
