4. What Was The Hipster: A Sociological Investigation – N+1 Small Books Series #3 by var. $10.00 – “Who was the turn-of-the-century hipster? Who is free enough of the hipster taint to write this history without contempt or nostalgia? Why are we tempted to declare the neo-hipster moment over, when the hipster’s “global brand” has just reached its apotheosis? A panel of writers invited the public to join an investigation into the rise and fall of the contemporary hipster. Their debate took place at the New School University in New York City, and was followed by articles, responses, and essays, all printed here for the first time.”
