McGill-Queen's University Press Joanna R. Quinn - Reconciliation(s): Transitional Justice in Postconflict Societies (Studies in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict) McGill-Queen's University Press Joanna R. Quinn - Reconciliation(s): Transitional Justice in Postconflict Societies (Studies in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict)

The transformation of conflict and post-conflict societies through transitional justice is now recognized as vital to the process of peace-building, with mechanisms such as trials, truth commissions, and apologies seen as essential for effecting societal change. It is widely argued that 'reconciliation' is a key element of this process, yet both scholars and practitioners are unclear as to what the concept is or how the process works. "Reconciliation(s)" considers the definition of the concept of reconciliation itself, focusing on the definitional dialogue that arises from the attempts to situate reconciliation within a theoretical and analytical framework. Contributing authors champion competing definitions, but all agree that it plays an important role in building relationships of trust and cohesion. The essays in this book also consider the nature and utility of reconciliation in a number of contexts, evaluating both its function and efficacy. A comprehensive evaluation of reconciliation as a means of bringing about social healing, "Reconciliation(s)" will be of interest to scholars from a broad range of disciplines. The contributors include Caitlin Donnelly (Queen's Belfast), Stephanus Du Toit (Institute for Justice and Reconciliation), Samar El-Masri (Prince Sultan University, Riyadh), Nicholas Frayling (Dean, Chichester Cathedral), Mark Freeman (International Center for Transitional Justice), Trudy Govier (Lethbridge), Brandon Hamber (Ulster), Joanne Hughes (Queen's Belfast), Anita Isaacs (Haverford), Grainne Kelly (INCORE, University of Ulster), Rosemary Nagy (Nipissing), Veerle Opgenhaffen (International Center for Transitional Justice), Valerie Perry (OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina), Joanna R. Quinn (Western), and Laurence Thomas (Syracuse).

Createspace Bill Meulemans - Belfast: Both Sides Now: Volume 1 Createspace Bill Meulemans - Belfast: Both Sides Now: Volume 1

"Belfast: Both Sides Now," by Bill Meulemans, tells the story of the Northern Ireland conflict through the eyes of both communities. Each side has an equal voice inside one book. The author writes in a journalistic style. He went out on the street to find out why the conflict started and why it will not end soon. When these warring groups are dissected, it becomes clear that they are driven by an ancient dispute that feeds on itself. Meulemans lived and worked among the working-class people of Belfast for 11 years while he was on the politics faculty of The Queen's University of Belfast. The book is for the reader who does not have an extensive background on the subject. It is 400 pages and is available on Amazon.

Ulster Historical Foundation Politics and Political Culture in Britain and Ireland, 1750-1850: Essays in Tribute to Peter Jupp Ulster Historical Foundation Politics and Political Culture in Britain and Ireland, 1750-1850: Essays in Tribute to Peter Jupp

Before his untimely death in the summer of 2006, Peter Jupp was widely recognised as one of the key influences in the recovery of British and Irish political history in the 'long' 18th century. His unrivalled knowledge of collections in public and private archives had made him well-nigh indispensable to several generations of historians. This volume had initially been conceived to mark Peter's retirement after 40 years' service to Queen's University Belfast. With his sudden passing, it became all the more important to acknowledge appropriately the true extent and depth of Peter's contribution -- as lecturer, researcher, author and mentor. These essays are now published to celebrate that achievement. They focus on the themes in which he himself was interested: elections and parliament; reaction and reform; political biography; the history of print and ideas; crowds and popular movements. Moreover, they relate to a period, the 18th and first half of the 19th centuries and the changing nature of relations between Ireland and Great Britain, so crucial to an understanding of contemporary affairs, all of which has been so handsomely illuminated by Peter's published work. The contributors have come together as former students, colleagues and friends -- often all three -- to pay tribute to his enthusiasm for this shared interest and to acknowledge the remarkable impression Peter Jupp has left on the study and wider understanding of British and Irish history. The contributors to the collection of essays include: Suzanne Kingon, Martin McElroy, Jacqueline Hill, Allan Blackstock, Nini Rodgers, A.P.W. Malcomson, Trevor Parkhill, Richard Gaunt, Michael Hopkinson, Petri Mirala, Frank O'Gorman, Eoin Magennis, Patrick McNally, and Mary O'Dowd. Short forewards are provided by Marianne Elliott and David Hayton.

Integrity Music Nathan Jess - Love Stands Forever Integrity Music Nathan Jess - Love Stands Forever

From the up and coming singer/songwriter, Nathan Jess, comes his first solo album packed with new worship sounds. Inspiring to the likes of All Sons and Daughter and John Mark McMillan, Nathan has captured beauty in the stillness and life in the songs. Nathan has been touring extensively in recent months and will continue this year by supporting Ben Cantelon, Rend Collective Experiment and playing live at Big Church Day Out. The album also includes co-writes with Nick Herbert, Rend Collective's Chris Llewellyn and Worship Central's Luke Hellebronth. Nathan Jess: 'My approach doesn't sit within the established generic worship mould,' explains Nathan Jess - correctly, as it turns out. For the twentysomething worship writer/leader from Northern Ireland, the 'approach' as he calls it is powerfully eclectic. To listen to a Nathan Jess song is to sit in the presence of a close friend you've never met before. His appeal is personal, universal and full of passion and truth. The story so far is simple enough. Nathan studied music at his local university - Queens, Belfast. The strong emphasis on composition suited Nathan, and upon graduating in July 2010 he was ready to take up a full time role leading worship, writing songs and more. The opportunity to support Casting Crowns when they played in Belfast in the following November turned out to be significant, as Kingsway staff heard Nathan play one of his most noticeable songs - 'I Am Redeemed'. A month earlier the song had featured on an independent film project, but it was not until July 2011 that he finally signed to Kingsway. Nathan since has been involved with extensive touring and this year with support Ben Cantelon, Rend Collective Experiment and perform at the Big Church Day Out.

Oxford University Press Marilynn Richtarik - Stewart Parker: A Life Oxford University Press Marilynn Richtarik - Stewart Parker: A Life

Born in Belfast during World War II, raised in a working-class Protestant family, and educated on scholarship at Queen's University, writer Stewart Parker's story is in many ways the story of his generation. Other aspects of his personal history, though, such as the amputation of his left leg at age 19, helped to create an extraordinarily perceptive observer and commentator. Steeped in American popular culture as a child and young adult, he spent five years teaching in the United States before returning to Belfast in August 1969, the same week British troops responded to sectarian disturbances there. Parker had developed a sense of writing as a form of political action in the highly charged atmosphere of the US in the late 1960s, which he applied in many and varied capacities throughout the worst years of the Troubles to express his own socialist and secular vision of Northern Irish potential.As a young aspiring poet and novelist, he supported himself with free-lance work that brought him into contact with institutions ranging from BBC Northern Ireland to the Irish Times (for which he wrote personal columns and the music review feature High Pop) and from the Queen's University Extramural Department to Long Kesh internment camp (where his creative writing students included Gerry Adams). It is as a playwright, however, that Parker earned a permanent spot in the literary canon with drama that encapsulates his experience of Northern Ireland in the 1970s. Marilynn Richtarik's Stewart Parker: A Life illuminates the genesis, development, and meaning of such classic plays as Spokesong, Northern Star, and Pentecost-works that continue to shed light on the North's past, present, and future-in the context of Parker's life and times. Meticulously researched and engagingly written, this critical biography rewards general readers and specialists alike.
