Schlesinger was a confirmed believer in the "great man" model of history - the concept that individuals control the course of human history rather than supra-individual "forces". Perhaps he was extreme in his belief, but it makes for very readable history. He was at the centre of Washington politics for decades and wrote it all down as it happened. Now we can read it in this excellent selection from his diaries.
