When 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."
