Chapter 25—Media Ecology

For a broad and deep introduction to the field of media ecology, see Dennis D. Cali, Mapping Media Ecology: Introduction to the Field, Peter Lang, New York, 2017.

McLuhan fans may enjoy a book that he co-authored with his son:

Marshall McLuhan and Eric McLuhan, Laws of Media: The New Science, University of Toronto Press, 1988. 

A particularly scholarly treatment of the history of communication technology (in the tradition of Walter Ong) is Ronald J. Deibert, Parchment, Printing, and Hypermedia: Communication in World Order Transformation, University of Columbia Press, New York, 1997.
