Berlin: Interest in Berlin remains extremely high as one of the great cutting-edge cultural centers of the world.
First of its kind: There is no English-language book on Berlin that tells the city’s story through the subcultures of the 1980s and 1990s.
Veteran reporter: Hockenos writes regularly for the New York Times, the Chronicle of Higher Education, Foreign Policy and other high-profile media outlets. His byline is familiar to a wide-range of academics, leftist intellectuals, and other progressives. He speaks German.
Early media feature: The Boston Review ran Hockenos’s long essay “Zero Hour: The First Days of New Berlin,” which forms the basis for the book, as a front-page story in its November-December 2014 issue.
Photos: The book will include around 20 black-and-white photographs from the early 1990s Berlin underground.

    At the height of the Cold War, West Berlin was as far as one could travel east without leaving the Western world.

    The denizens of “the scene,” as it was called, joined the likes of the city’s gray-bunned war widows and Allied soldiers as constituents of the bizarre microcosm that was West Berlin.
