Bombs Away

University of Chicago Press

International settings for military-to-wildlife conversions often bring cultural considerations more actively into view than their counterparts in the United States. Along broad expanses of militarized landscapes such as the Iron Curtain borderlands of central Europe or the Demilitarized Zone of the Korean Peninsula, the political and historical contexts of these sites are maintained along with the explicit or de facto nature reserves that have emerged along these areas. These international settings provide important examples and lessons in how militarized landscapes are treated, managed, and understood over time.

Keywords:   Iron Curtain, Korean Demilitarized Zone, DMZ, Montebello Islands, Bikini Atoll, European Green Belt
