Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

30 years after its publication Marshall McLuhan's The Medium is the Massage remains his most entertaining, provocative, and piquant book. With every technological and social "advance" McLuhan's proclamation that "the media work us over completely" becomes more evident and plain. In his words, Uso 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. With the rise of the internet and the explosion of the digital revolution there has never been a better time to revisit Marshall McLuhan.

Synopsis:

Now more relevant than ever, as McLuhan's foresights about the impact of new media are actualized at unprecedented speeds, this text portrays technologies as an extension of man, illustrating how our senses and preceptions are altered as these devices become integral parts of our lives.
