    How ought history be interpreted---by trends over periods of time or moment by moment by humans?

    Foucault, in the Archeology of Knowledge, wrote some interesting thoughts on what he entitled "New Historicism."

    I don't mind right wing histories that focus on powerful individuals.

    In earlier periods these are probably reasonable representations of why the things that happened, happened.

    Now that power is so widely spread it would be hard to construct any kind of meaningful history simply on the basis of individuals.
