Marshall McLuhan: G.K. Chesterton: a practical mystic.
This is not a book, it is the first article that McLuhan ever published and it appears in the Dalhousie Review 15 (1936), 455-464. If you can't find the journal, there is extensive reference to the article and discussion of it in my biography of McLuhan. W. Terrence Gordon

  • "The hallmark of revolution is that the goals of the revolutionaries cannot be contained by the institutional structure of the society they live in. As a result, either the revolutionaries are put down, or some of those institutions are transmogrified, replaced, or simply destroyed. We are plainly witnessing a restructuring of the music and newspaper businesses, but their suffering isn’t unique, it’s prophetic." --Clay Shirky
