When political opponents lan 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 places their role in a wider cultural context and examines a broad range of factual and fictional representations from journalism and public museum exhibitions to film, television drama and situation comedy. The authors propose a radically different theoretical and methodological approach to the media's role in reporting and representing. They ask whether the Propaganda of peace' actually promotes the abandonment of a politically engaged public sphere at the very moment when public debate about neo-liberalism. finacial meltdown and social and economic inequality make it most necessary.
