Abstract:

The originator of such widely used phrases as "the global village" and "the medium is the message," Marshall McLuhan -- the prescient media guru -- is finally attracting the critical attention he deserves. In the 1960s, McLuhan blazed the intellectual territory which we are only coming to grips with today. This couldn't be a better time for a readable, full-scale treatment of his writings, a book that reflects the range and depth of his thought accurately and accessibly. Marshall McLuhan: Escape into Understanding fills this gap.
