Since its first appearance in 1962, the impact of The Gutenberg Galaxy has been felt around the world. It gave us the concept of the global village; that phrase has now been translated, along with the rest of the book, into twelve languages, from Japanese to Serbo-Croat. It helped establish Marshall McLuhan as the original 'media guru.' More than 200,000 copies are in print. The reissue of this landmark book reflects the continuing importance of McLuhan's work for contemporary readers. Editorial Reviews Saturday Night 'One of the most stimulating and important books that has been written in our time.' The Observer Weekend Review 'Endlessly stimulating, informative, and liberating.' From the Publisher 'One of the most stimulating and important books that has been written in our time.' 'Endlessly stimulating, informative, and liberating.'
