When seeking to resurrect the delicate nuances of history, a historian must not only present their topic in a clear and logical fashion, they must also employ several tactics to ensure that their positions are well founded and that the evidence works in a fashion that both supports their positions while simultaneously attempting to dispel any criticism of their arguments. Understandably, this task is often difficult and riddled with hidden obstacles seemingly designed by history itself to derail the historian’s task of breathing new life into times past. One strategy employed in recent decades by historians to advance their arguments is their use of the history of the individual in terms of their influence on key historical events and society.
