Existing orthodoxies concerning peace-building in violently divided societies are challenged in this innovative book. Integrating a vast range of original research, the book gives a holistic analysis of power sharing, social movements, economic regeneration, urban space, memorialization and the symbols associated with the process of transforming divided societies into shared peaceful ones. Providing a comprehensive overview of the bitter debates designed to promote a shared society, the authors posit critical suggestions as to why some projects are counter–productive, while others assist with peace–building. A clear understanding of what seems to work and fails in terms of creating a 'shared society' can help formulate a consistent model of best practice, public policy and democratic accountability for so–called 'divided societies'. Focussing on the case of Northern Ireland, the book also has a strong international dimension for those wishing to engage more generally with the peace-building process.

Women of the Dáil

Women of the Dáil explores the role of political women during the Irish revolution, specifically those who were Dáil deputies and related to recently-deceased patriots. These women successfully used familial links to bolster their political credibility during the years after the Easter Rising, but found this rhetorical strategy much more difficult to deploy in the wake of the Anglo-Irish Treaty. Drawing on a number of published and unpublished sources, Women of the Dáil analyzes this rhetorical shift in order to explain the interplay between gender, republicanism and the Irish revolution.

The first interdisciplinary study of violence and the modern Irish experience, Shadows of the Gunmen contributes to both Irish studies and the broader examination of violence in the modern world. Providing both examples of and an introduction to recent scholarship that addresses the representations of violence, Shadows of the Gunmen probes the connections between political/historical violence and aesthetic representations thereof. Scholars have long understood the key roles played by violence in the making of modern Ireland. In recent years, studies on violence have become increasingly creative and sophisticated, as scholars have used new analytical lenses to confront the real challenges faced in "writing violence." Much of the best work in this new literature examines the complex relationships between violence and its representation. Shadows of the Gunmen provides a coherent introduction to the latest scholarship. With essays from historians, film scholars, literary critics, and philosophers, Shadows of the Gunmen is both relevant to the particular Irish experience and the broader contemporary world. Violence may not speak, but violence is represented and these depictions are continually interrogated and/or contested in public and private arenas across Ireland and abroad. This volume of essays will explore and probe the connection between political/historical violence and aesthetic representations of such violence. The first interdisciplinary study of violence and the modern Irish experience, Shadows of the Gunmen is a major contribution to both Irish studies and the broader examination of violence in the modern world.

Die Diktatur im Pausenmodus: Stadt und Spiele im Sommer 1936 Im Sommer 1936 steht Berlin ganz im Zeichen der Olympischen Spiele. Zehntausende strömen in die deutsche Hauptstadt, die die Nationalsozialisten in diesen sechzehn Tagen als weltoffene Metropole präsentieren wollen. Oliver Hilmes folgt prominenten und völlig unbekannten Personen, Deutschen und ausländischen Gästen durch die fiebrig-flirrende Zeit der Sommerspiele und verknüpft die Ereignisse dieser Tage kunstvoll zum Panorama einer Diktatur im Pausenmodus. Die »Juden verboten«-Schilder sind plötzlich verschwunden, statt des »Horst-Wessel-Lieds« klingen Swing-Töne durch die Straßen. Berlin scheint für kurze Zeit eine ganz normale europäische Großstadt zu sein, doch im Hintergrund arbeitet das NS-Regime weiter daran, die Unterdrückung zu perfektionieren und das Land in den Krieg zu treiben. In »Berlin 1936« erzählt Oliver Hilmes präzise, atmosphärisch dicht und mitreißend von Sportlern und Künstlern, Diplomaten und NS-Größen, Transvestiten und Prostituierten, Restaurantbesitzern und Nachtschwärmern, Berlinern und Touristen. Es sind Geschichten, die faszinieren und verstören, überraschen und bewegen. Es sind die Geschichten von Opfern und Tätern, Mitläufern und Zuschauern. Es ist die Geschichte eines einzigartigen Sommers.
