If asked to propose a what-if, most of us would probably first posit that the South won the Civil War or that Germany won World War II. The latter was not available when this volume was put together, but those two alternatives do account, in one form or another, for a large proportion of alternative history fiction. Which is why, given my strong background in history, I have always enjoyed rereading the essays in this volume; they aren't retreads of the same old ideas. And, given the general quality of the contributors, all of them are very much worth the reading. While it has been reprinted several times, this book nerveless has been out of print for more than forty years and I wish someone would pick it up again.
