see also rare copy (1 at Central Branch) of " McLuhan: A Pocketfull of Mirrors," (1972), a chapbook by Mark Slade, for whom McLuhan was both mentor and friend; he offers his brief impressions and spin of this Canadian's visionary work. (Inspired by the incipient birth of "media studies", and early 60s discussions with M.M., Slade also wrote Language of Change: Moving Images of Man (1970); and after McLuhan's death, "Lakshana: Autopsy of a Century", 1994).

Watch this video! It's on Canada's ONLY claim to fame, and well-done too.
A prophet is, by definition, always before his/her time, and McLuhan paid the price. [His oh-so canadian university dismantled his institute without even bothering to wait for him to die of his stroke].
The value of this documentary- it's a warm-up to his sometimes daunting and always dense prose.
