Marshall McLuhan Unbound (20 individual offprints in a slipcase)
Marshall McLuhan:
Marshall McLuhan Unbound
— 20 individual offprints in a slipcase —
Edited by Eric McLuhan and W. Terrence Gordon
The essay is for exploring; the book, for explaining. Such was McLuhan’s philosophy about these two forms. The essay is the freer form and one better suited to exploration than the longer meditation, the book.

This startling new series puts the reader in the place of colleague and co-researcher. Instead of giving the reader just another collection of articles and interviews, McLuhan Unbound gives you offprints of the original essays. See how the two McLuhans, the literary academic and the public media expert are really one. Some of these articles were written before the subsequent book was envisioned: they are preliminary forays into new territory. Some were written after the book and encapsulate major themes; some set out additional discoveries or matters left out of the book; some present material discovered as a result of writing the book.

The McLuhan Unbound offprints series is not the last word in presenting McLuhan’s ideas and discoveries, but the first.

About the Author:
Marshall McLuhan
One of the most controversial and original thinkers of our time, McLuhan is universally regarded as the father of communications and media studies.

But he is far more than that. A cha­ris­matic figure, whose remarkable per­ception propelled him onto the inter­national stage, McLuhan became the prophet of the new information age.

In his own time he drew both ac­col­ades and criticism for his intuitive vision, his steady stream of thought-provoking metaphors, and fast-for­ward glimpses into a world where software would eclipse hardware and the power of mass media would eclipse the power of government. The information superhighway fulfilled his perceptive observation that the world would ultimately become a "global village."
