"Between Prague Spring and French May is a bold and much-needed reassessment of protest in postwar Europe. These essays make a meaningful contribution to the historiographies of the Cold War, the European New Left, and youth as a category of analysis in addition to analyzing successfully the political culture of protest transnationally without downplaying national contours. … In one fell swoop, the editors have given exciting, if ambitious, marching orders to future researchers."
– Sarah Žabić, Peace & Change
"These essays provide useful insights on the transnational elements of protest, as well as new understandings of the absence of protest in some areas."
– Journal for the Study of Radicalism
"The well-footnoted chapters are based on extensive research. There is an extensive bibliography and a 25-page chronology of events in 1968. The writing quality is …generally good."
"[A] thought-provoking collection of chapters that identify the connections between current historical research on postwar European protest movements and the “transnational turn” in the social sciences […] this volume offers many new insights into the complex history of 1968 on both sides of the Iron Curtain, bringing awareness to developments in smaller countries such as Yugoslavia, Denmark, and Norway that are usually omitted in existing literature. These essays should assist scholars studying Europe in the postwar period to transcend reductionist national narratives. The seventh volume of the Protest, Culture, and Society series is another welcome contribution to a much-needed and more comprehensive view of historical and cultural change in Europe around the mystical year of 1968."
