Synopsis:
In Uncanny Australia Gelder and Jacobs show how Aboriginal claims for sacredness radiate out to affect the modern nation. They look at Coronation Hill, Hindmarsh Island, Uluru and the repatriation of sacred objects; they examine secret business in public places, promiscuous sacred sites, ghosts and bunyips, cartographic nostalgia, reconciliation and democracy, postcolonial racism and New Age enchantments.

Uncanny Australia is a challenging and thought-provoking work that offers a new way of understanding how the sacred haunts the modern through the effect of the uncanny.
