This volume combines two works, Rage and Liberation: Dada in Cologne and Hanover Dada: Transaction, Transformation and the Tradition of Modernism. Written by Charlotte Stokes, Rage and Liberation discusses the brief coalition between individuals committed to radical political action and innovation in the arts, while Hanover Dada, edited by Stephen C. Foster, presents this face of Dada as a complex phenomenon that extended beyond the artwork of Kurt Schwitters.

"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)
