“Jack Macksoud was a rare and fascinating character – a Nietzche-like figure who somehow drifted into and through the orbit of Communication Studies.  Brilliant, unorthodox, and slightly iconoclastic, Macksoud challenged his students and colleagues to bend their minds in new directions and to reconsider well entrenched assumptions.  Other Illusions was his only major publication, and consistent with his maverick temperament, Macksoud published the book himself.  Fortunately, this edition makes it available to a wider public and opens Macksoud’s thought to a new generation of scholars interested in the philosophy of communication.” – Michael Leff, Professor and Department Chair, Department of Communication, College of Communication and Fine Arts, University of Memphis
