173 Inglis, K.S. Sacred Places - War Memorials in the Australian Landscape
Melbourne Melbourne University Press 2008 0522854796 / 9780522854794 Reprint (with corrections) Softcover 
Small Quarto Size. Fine copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. 640 pages In this award winning book, Ken Inglis argues that the imagery, rituals and rhetoric generated around memorials constitute a civil religion, a cult of Anzac. He traces three elements which converge to create that cult: the special place of war in the European mind when nationalism was at its zenith; the colonial condition; and the death of so many young men in a distant battle which impelled the bereaved to make substitutes for the graves of which history had deprived them. ID251474
