For any people who might be interested in reading Ong, I would point out that his three books that were published originally in the 1980s are his most accessible books: (1) FIGHTING FOR LIFE: CONTEST, SEXUALITY, AND CONSCIOUSNESS (1981), (2) ORALITY AND LITERACY: THE TECHNOLOGIZING OF THE WORD (1982), and (3) HOPKINS, THE SELF, AND GOD (1986).
