New Book Review: Richard Ned Lebow's "Archduke Franz Ferdinand Lives!"

This week's issue of the Forward features my review of Richard Ned Lebow's Archduke Franz Ferdinand Lives! A World Without World War I.



It's an interesting book and relates directly to the recent NPR exploration of counterfactual scenarios relating to the Great War.  

We will probably be wondering "what if?" quite a bit in the months leading up to this summer's commemorative ceremonies.   

(And for the fact hounds out on patrol: yes, I know that FF was Franz Josef's nephew, not son; that error somehow slipped into the text).
