Eastern Dada Orbit is composed of two distinct parts and describes two largely unexplored aspects of Dada. The first, Dada in Central and Eastern Europe (including the former Soviet Union), edited by Gerald Janecek, was a previously closed field that scholars have since discovered reveals the significant influence of Dada on the region. The second part of this volume, Tada=Dada (Devotedly Dada) for the Stage: The Japanese Dada Movement 1920-1925, focuses upon the equally under researched area of Dada in Japan. Toshiharu Omuka traces the particular place of Dada within the dynamic development of Japanese modernism.
"This is a world premiere in the field of scholarly publishing; an exhaustive compilation in an encyclopedic format of all that this artistic, literary, political, sociological and philosophic movement has covered... To my knowledge, no project of such magnitude has ever been attempted anywhere."
-- Michel Sanouillet, Dean Emeritus, University of Nice, France; founder and first president of the International Association for the Study of Dada and Surrealism (November 2002)
