History is made and defined by landmark events such as theseΓΓé¼ΓÇ¥moments that irrevocably changed the course of human civilization. While many of us are taught that anonymous social, political, and economic forces are the driving factors behind events of the past, acclaimed historian and award-winning Professor J. Rufus Fears believes that itΓΓé¼Γäós individuals, acting alone or together, who alter the course of history. These events have given us
* spiritual and political ideas,
* catastrophic battles and wars,
* scientific and technological advances,
* world leaders both influential and monstrous, and
* cultural works of unparalleled beauty.
