Fred Turner’s research and writing explore media, technology and American cultural history. He is especially interested in how emerging media have shaped American life since World War II. He is the author of three books, including The Democratic Surround: Multimedia and American Liberalism from World War II to the Psychedelic Sixties (Chicago, 2013) and From Counterculture to Cyberculture: Stewart Brand, the Whole Earth Network, and the Rise of Digital Utopianism (Chicago, 2006).

Thanks for the overview. This interview with Turner in Logic Magazine is another great brief introduction to his work.

His book The Democratic Surround sounds like it's extremely Relevant To My Interests, as someone who's always trying to argue that New-Deal/Post-War American Liberalism was the best possible left political program. I'm off to the library!
