Traumascapes: The Power and Fate of Places Transformed by Tragedy

Paperback
Traumascapes is a deeply-felt and wonderfully intelligent exploration of international sites where traumas of great magnitude have occurred. Its subjects include the Moscow theatre where hundreds were held hostage by terrorists in 2003; the field in Pennsylvania, USA, where a plane hijacked in the 9/11 attacks crashed; the 2002 Bali bombing; and, various sites in Bosnia, and the scenic ruins of the Port Arthur colonial penal settlement in Tasmania.
