The Global Village: Dead or Alive?

Synopsis

"In a world that is witnessing the explosive forces of individualism, tribalism, cultism, religion, nationalism, and regionalism, can the "global village" concept as envisioned by Marshall McLuhan have any meaning or hope for fruition? Do the media merely electronically override the basic forces of human expression without in any way changing them?" "This new title from Popular Press contains fifteen essays by some of our leading scholars and thinkers who weigh the pros and cons and come up with individual conclusions and a consensus."
