More than 40 years after its initial publication in 1967, this piquant classic is being released once again in its original hardcover format in celebration of the McLuhan Centenary. The Medium is the Massage remains Marshall McLuhan’s most popular book, perhaps as influential as Understanding Media.

With every technological and social “advance,” McLuhan’s theories reveal how prescient his insights actually proved to be. McLuhan's proclamation that “the media work us over completely” becomes more evident every day. In his words, “so pervasive are they in their personal, political, economic, aesthetic, psychological, moral, ethical and social consequences that they leave no part of us untouched, unaffected, or unaltered.”

McLuhan’s remarkable observation that “societies have always been shaped more by the nature of the media by which men communicate than by the content of the communication” is undoubtedly more relevant today than ever before.

About the Author:
Marshall McLuhan
One of the most controversial and original thinkers of our time, McLuhan is universally regarded as the father of communications and media studies.

But he is far more than that. A cha­ris­matic figure, whose remarkable per­ception propelled him onto the inter­national stage, McLuhan became the prophet of the new information age.

In his own time he drew both ac­col­ades and criticism for his intuitive vision, his steady stream of thought-provoking metaphors, and fast-for­ward glimpses into a world where software would eclipse hardware and the power of mass media would eclipse the power of government. The information superhighway fulfilled his perceptive observation that the world would ultimately become a "global village."

Marshall McLuhan:
The Mechanical Bride (Pb)
This is the devastating book which first established Marshall McLuhan’s reputation as the foremost critic of modern mass communications. The Mechanical Bride is vintage McLuhan — so aptly illustrated by dozens of examples from ads, comic strips, columnists, etc., that those who were stung by McLuhan were hard put for rebuttals. more...
