    DescriptionWhen political opponents Ian Paisley and Martin McGuiness were confirmed as First Minister and Deputy First Minister of a new Northern Ireland executive in May 2007, a chapter was closed on Northern Ireland's troubled past. A dramatic realignment of politics had brought these irreconcilable enemies together--and the media played a significant role in persuading the public to accept this startling change. "The Propaganda of Peace" analyzes this incident and others in a wider study on the role of the media in conflict resolution and transformation. With analysis of factual and fictional media forms, "The Propaganda of Peace" proposes a radically different theoretical and methodological approach to the media's role in reporting and representing.

    Review quote
    "McLaughlin and Baker's well-documented, tightly reasoned, and carefully crafted book examines the propaganda of peace that was mobilized in Northern Ireland during the period leading up to the ratification of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement and which still sustains the peace process. . . . An exemplary case study."--Sue Curry Jansen, Muhlenberg College"War and Media Network" (05/10/2011)
