Marshall McLuhan & Quentin Fiore: War and Peace in the Global Village FACSIMILE REPRINT
Marshall McLuhan & Quentin Fiore:
War and Peace in the Global Village
Produced by Jerome Agel
Originally published in 1968, this sequel to The Medium is the Massage was so prophetic that it has taken three decades to see how much the book guides our understanding of electric media.

War and Peace in the Global Village is a collage of images and text that sharply illustrates how electric technology “stimulate more discontinuity and diversity and division than the old mechanical society.” Interviewed by Playboy magazine a year after the book’s release, McLuhan called our era a “transitional era of profound pain and tragic identity quest.” “But,” he added, “the agony of our age is the labor pain of rebirth.” Today, War and Peace in the Global Village speaks to a new generation, and a wider international audience.

Marshall McLuhan’s books are published in more than a dozen languages. He is widely considered to be the most original thinker of the twentieth century.

Quentin Fiore is one of America’s most distinguished graphic designers and perhaps the most successful of all McLuhan collaborators.

Jerome Agel has written and produced more than fifty books, including original visual interpretations of Marshall McLuhan’s and Buckminster Fuller’s work.

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."
