Beyond Sustainability? Ecocide in South Australia's Desert Landscapes

Angela Keys, Oliver Villar, Drew Cottle

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

Abstract

Ecocide has been wrought upon South Australia's desert region, transforming it into an area now deemed by local Aborigines as poisoned country. The ravaged desert region stands today a vestige of Cold War militarism: the 'hideous blank' has been conquered. The concept of 'sustainability' has no relevance to this blighted landscape.
