This is the second of four world-renowned Drawing Support books by sociologist Professor Bill Rolston, first published in 1998. Each of the books is an important and unique historical record of imagery relating to conflict and peace.

How can the political wall murals in the North of Ireland cope with the peace process and ceasefires? This second volume of unique photographs charts the changes in loyalist and republican mural painting between 1992 and 1995 and casts a tentative glance towards the future.
