Marilyn Young and Mark Bradley have assembled a superb cast of twelve scholars and writers, spanning the generations from those who were active during the Vietnam period through younger scholars who have been doing on-the-ground research in Vietnamese sources, as well as uncovering new sources from the Soviet Union, China, Eastern Europe, and Western Europe.

K. Blaser, CHOICE Many of the 11 articles in Making Sense present wide-ranging examples of new and less conventional approaches to examining the war, with a particular focus on Vietnamese and international perspectives.... Essential.

Walter LaFeber, author of America, Russia, and the Cold War, 1945-2006 This is a path-breaking, exceptionally well-researched book by both distinguished scholars who link and reinterpret the entire 1940s to 1970s series of conflicts, and leading scholars who have explored new archival sources for the first time--not least in Vietnam itself--to provide fresh, significant, and revealing insights into key aspects of a many-layered, and ever-haunting, war.

George Herring, author of America's Longest War: The United States and Vietnam, 1950-1975 Examining the topic from local, national, and international perspectives, this important volume provides a superb introduction to the most recent scholarship on the Vietnam War.

Patrick Hagopian, The Journal of American History The cutting-edge research in this volume constitutes a crucial addition to the library of anyone interested in the histories of the Vietnam Wars.

James McAllister, History: Reviews of New Books There is little doubt that Making Sense of the Vietnam Wars will influence how future students of the war move forward in their efforts to understand the conflict.
