Sacred Places: War Memorials in the Australian Landscape, Issue 2005
The war memorials and holy sites of the new civil and nationalist religion of the Australian and New Zealand Air Corps (Anzac) are evaluated in this beautifully produced book. After the terrors of the First World War, Australians embarked on a remarkable program of war memorial construction creating large and small mementos that adorn the Australian landscape to this day—pieces that express pride and grief in the perceptions of God, empire, and nation. The author traces the development of the cult of Anzac and its monuments, covering their social origins and modern implications of national spirit and patriotism. This edition includes a new forward to mark the 90th anniversary of the Anzac's landing at Gallipoli.
