Photograph : Belinda Lewis.. Box 1. Fragile ecosystems of Burrup. Burrup Peninsula was originally a small island of km 2 surrounded by the 42 islands of the Dampier Archipelago. Some rocks were formed million years ago and are amongst the oldest in the world.
Hot, arid climate with a shallow soil profile, few permanent water sources, seasonal watercourses follow the wet season and tropical cyclones.

Lewis structures his study thematically according to these issues, examining how they impact on, and are impacted by, the inextricably linked human dispositions of pleasure and displeasure, desire and fear. Providing a timely analysis of cultural transformation and crisis, Lewis explores the implications for human society and human nature of a media culture that has become 'an open-bordered space in which text producers and consumers become exchangeable identities within a vaporous and contingent interaction of human imagining'.
Rightly taking care to note that the phenomenon of culturally mediated crises and insecurity s is by no means new, Lewis argues that this is nonetheless exacerbated through the hyper-mediated, digitally saturated present: 'knowledge systems and their respective concordia of meanings are themselves shaped and amplified through a media-dominated culture-a mediasphere which articulates human consciousness and the ways in which the world appears to us as "real"'.
In the book's introduction and initial chapter, Lewis maps out the historical precedents of, and pre-requisites for, the 'contemporary crisis consciousness'. An unknown error has occurred.

After the War of the Gods, the demons were cast out and fell to the world. Mankind was nearly eradicated by the seemingly unstoppable beasts, until the gods sent the great hero, Ramrowan, to save them. He united the tribes, gave them magic, and drove the demons into the sea. Ever since the land has belonged to man and the oceans have remained an uncrossable hell, leaving the continent of Lok isolated.

It was prophesized that someday the demons would return, and only the descendants of Ramrowan would be able to defeat them. They became the first kings, and all men served those who were their only hope for survival. As centuries passed the descendants of the great hero grew in number and power. They became tyrannical and cruel, and their religion nothing but an excuse for greed.

Gods and demons became myth and legend, and the people no longer believed. The castes created to serve the Sons of Ramrowan rose up and destroyed their rulers. All religion was banned and replaced by a code of unflinching law. The surviving royalty and their priests were made casteless, condemned to live as untouchables, and the Age of Law began. Ashok Vadal has been chosen by a powerful ancient weapon to be its bearer. He is a Protector, the elite militant order of roving law enforcers. No one is more merciless in rooting out those who secretly practice the old ways.
