Summary
"This volume explores the role of Australia in apocalyptic literature and film. Works and genres covered include Nevil Shute's popular novel On the Beach, Mad Max, children's literature, Indigenous writing, and cyberpunk. The text examines ways in which apocalypse undermines complacency, foretells environmental disasters, critiques colonization, and serves as a vehicle of protest for minority groups"--Provided by publisher
