Abstract:

The modern age is the age of terror. Terror arises not only in time, in a period of history, but also in space, in places of terror. This book calls them "feral quaking zones", places where the earth quakes and terror is experienced as a result of modern industrial technology. For example, Rod Giblett explores the dark underside of the modern industrial city; the landscapes of modern world warfare; farmscapes, minescapes and timescapes; disasters such as Chernobyl, the Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and 9/11, and landscape, wilderness and wasteland photography of Australia and the United States. Giblett distinguishes these sites from what he calls "native quaking zones", such as swamps - home to the alligator and crocodile, and home also to death, decomposition and new life. The book concludes in hope with an examination of the landscape of the wetland as the native quaking zone par excellence.
