Near fine condition; VG+ jacket with mild soiling and edge wear. An influential book in which the author proposes that the media, not the content that they carry, should be the focus of study. He suggests that the medium affects the society in which it plays a role mainly by the characteristics of the medium rather than the content. The book is considered a pioneering study in media theory. It is the source of the well-known phrase "The medium is the message".
