Terms and phrases such as "the global village" and "the medium is the message" are now part of the lexicon, and McLuhan's theories continue to challenge our sensibilities and our assumptions about how and what we communicate.


**** Cited in BCL3. A reissue marking the 30th anniversary of McLuhan's classic on the then-emerging phenomena of mass media. McLuhan's prescient view of a media-sculpted society of the future is supplemented by an introductory essay by Lewis Lapham, editor of Harper's. Annotation c.
