The McLuhan Explosion: A Casebook on Marshall McLuhan and Understanding Media.
Crosby, Harry H.; Bond, George R.
Designed to serve as a casebook for introductory college-level English courses, this collection of 33 articles critically reviews the works of Marshall McLuhan on the effects of media. Each of the reviews is followed by questions designed to encourage the student to concentrate on the more important points of the review and of McLuhan's ideas. Also included are the introduction and first three chapters of McLuhan's "Understanding Media", a series of projects designed to provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate their comprehension of McLuhan's ideas, and a glossary of "McLuhanisms".
