An analysis of the German Question's influence on the origins of the Cold War, arguing that the legal and diplomatic intercourse between the Allies regarding the treatment of the German Question brought forward the elements of intervention and coexistence which formed the basis for a relatively peaceful postwar international order.

'...Lewkowicz has made a valuable contribution to our understanding of the beginnings of the Cold War, also drawing some interesting parallels between the German precedent and Bosnia-Hercegovina, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan...' - Martin Lak, Erasmus University Rotterdam, German History
