In the same month that the single issue of the only official New York Dada magazine was published, April 1921, the Société Anonyme arranged a formal session to discuss the question "What is Dada?" This volume attempts to address that question through a series of engaging essays by such well-known New York Dada scholars as Martin Gaughan, Estera Milman, Ruth L. Bohan, Dickran Tashjian, Naomi Sawelson-Gorse, Michel Sanouillet, David Hopkins and Dafydd Jones.

"This highly praised essay series attempts a reevaluation of the Dada movement by applying recent scholarship to well recorded events. The series is organized according to geographical locales, but the volumes are uneven in quality and usefulness...Because of its outstanding collections of illustrations and its overview of the intellectual scene in this most central of cities, volume 6 in this series provides a service to the scholarly community, particularly lower and upper division undergraduates, and to general readers." -- Choice (March 2002)
