Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Harold Innis in the New Century crackles with interdisciplinary tensions in a very stimulating way, and almost every piece in the collection has an eye on a context for Innis's ideas that is in some way a little different -- from the Whig tradition and the Scottish Enlightenment to cybernetics and aesthetics. The diversity is truly impressive. What other modern or 'amodern' or 'antimodern' author could generate such diverse yet consistently engrossed responses from a generation of generally postmodern communications experts?" Doug Long, Department of Political Science, University of Western Ontario
