Although a relatively new approach to research, psychobiography has emerged as a fascinating, diverse, and useful approach to the interpretation of the lives and works of significant historical figures. Claude-Hélène Mayer and Zoltan Kovary in their wonderful, new, edited work, New Trends in Psychobiography, present not only an introduction to this type of research, but also share emerging and innovative ways psychobiographers are carrying out their fascinating case studies employing a variety of psychological personality theories.
