96 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War and Peace in The Global Village is a collage of images and text that sharply illustrates the effects of electronic media and new technology on man. Marshall McLuhan wrote this book thirty years ago and following its publication predicted that the forthcoming information age would be "a transitional era of profound pain and tragic identity quest". Marshall McLuhan illustrates the fact that all social changes are caused by introduction of new technologies. He interprets these new technologies as extensions or "self-amputations of our own being", because technologies extend bodily reach. McLuhan's ideas and observations seem disturbingly accurate and clearly applicable to the world in which we live
The mechanical bride: folklore of industrial man by Marshall McLuhan( Book )

69 editions published between 1951 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This brilliant and witty approach to the contemporary scene revolutionized the study of communication theory in our time. Marshall McLuhan's famous pronouncement that 'the medium is the message' is revealed, in this seminal work, by the 'media' themselves--the original advertisements; the contemporary heroes from Tarzan to Superman; the executive gimmicks of 'know how' and 'plain talk' that constitute the folklore of industrial man. Professor McLuhan's penetrating and probing approach has invaluable insights for all readers--general reader or educator, management man or creative writer--indeed, for every consumer or creator in every field. ... Long a famous 'underground' work, The mechanical bride is now obviously the book that pointed the way toward untangling the complicated web of today's communications."--Jacket

Marshall McLuhan : escape into understanding : a biography by W. Terrence Gordon( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

The bias of communication by Harold Adams Innis( Book )

7 editions published between 1964 and 1984 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book "is a collection of essays by one of Canada's greatest historians, on a subject that opened broad new avenues of thought on the role of media in the creation of history. Marshall McLuhan, deeply influenced by these essays, led North America to a new awareness of the role of media in contemporary culture. The works of Harold Innis are seminal in the study of Canadian history; the essays in this volume continue to generate intense debate among historians, communications scholars, and media theorists. This new edition includes a thoughtful introduction by two scholars who outline the career of Innis and the development of his ideas. They go on to elucidate the grand themes of the essays: a communicational approach to history, and a critical reflection on the situation of culture and technology in recent times. They identify in the essays all the concepts associated with Innis's communications work: medium, bias, monopoly of knowledge, empire, and especially the oral tradition. Finally, they assess the influence of the book on the study of communications theory and Canadian history"--Back cover
