Lebow, Richard Ned. "Counterfactuals, History and Fiction"
Summary: Discussion of the utility of allohistory in studying history, with attention paid to the inevitability of World War I and the peaceful resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis and their possible alternative outcomes. Also summarizes many points in Lebow's Forbidden Fruit: Counterfactuals and International Relations.
Comments: Part of a special issue on "Counterfactual Thinking as a Scientific Method", but otherwise only Geoffrey Winthrop-Young's "Fallacies and Thresholds: Notes on the Early Evolution of Alternate History" seems pertinent to this bibliography.
