About the Book

This collection contains key critical essays and assessments of the writings of Canadian communications thinker Marshall McLuhan selected from the voluminous output of the past forty years. McLuhan's famous aphorisms and uncanny ability to sense megatrends are once again in circulation across and beyond the disciplines. Since his untimely death in 1980, McLuhan's ideas have been rediscovered and redeployed with urgency in the age of information and cybernation.

Together the three volumes organise and present some forty years of indispensable critical works for readers and researchers of the McLuhan legacy. The set includes critical introductions to each section by the editor.

Forthcoming titles in this series include Walter Benjamin (0-415-32533-1) December 2004, 3 vols, Theodor Adorno (0-415-30464-4) April 2005, 4 vols and Jean-Francois Lyotard (0-415-33819-0) 2005, 3 vols.

About the Series

Critical Evaluations in Cultural Theory

The collections in this series will draw together essential secondary writings on the work of a range of inspirational thinkers who have contributed to the development of what we now understand as cultural theory. The work of these key figures draws on a variety of disciplines - most especially those of literary studies, philosophy, sociology, history, linguistics, anthropology and psychoanalysis. Edited with new introductions by leading scholars in the field, the sets in this series will demonstrate how these diverse themes relate to contemporary social thought.
