Description: Signs of War and Peace focuses on the role public display plays in the conflict in Northern Ireland. In doing so, it ranges freely over other times, places, and events that shed light on the social and political processes and dynamics involved in public display traditions, such as the Saint Patrick's Day parades in Boston, Massachusetts, and the popular spontaneous shrines to Lady Diana in London. The book is about the nature of public display and its relationships to class-based aesthetics, tradition, and popular style. It is also about contest, conflict, and civil war, and the ways in which the former are intimately intertwined with the latter, both in Northern Ireland and elsewhere throughout the world. The work is interdisciplinary, combining ethnographic, anthropological, folkloristic, and performance studies approaches. The perspective that Santino offers helps to explain the intensity of the conflict as well as the origins, motivations, and justifications of bonfires, murals, commemorative displays, parades, and other forms that symbolically articulate what he terms the "dual master narratives" that underlie and in many ways articulate the parameters of that conflict.
