Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'In this book, Richard Grusin demonstrates why he is one of the leading media and cultural theorists of our time. Lucid and convincing throughout, Premediation interrogates our mediatized futures, today. It is essential reading.'

- Andrew Hoskins, University of Nottingham, UK

'Premediation offers an important counterpoint to the hegemony of futurism, a critical analysis of how visions and narratives of the future require more than a second glance. Grusin remediates his well known work on media, technology and time through an affective political sphere; one that, he argues, is cultivating an uncanny feeling of inevitability.'

- Greg Elmer, Ryerson University, Canada
