Description :
The A. argues that the popularity of these vehicles has important consequences for contemporary notions of place and should be considered in the context of the upsurge in communication systems. This culture encompasses a literal mobility and a fantasy relationship between urban or suburban regions and those of the great outdoors, especially wilderness. By using the Australian experience, the A. shows that this culture plays a significant role in a renegotiation of the iconography of national identity.
