This exploratory study tries to provide an understanding of the discourse of the 21st century peace protests. With a methodology that combines insights from content analysis, discourse analysis and semiotics, the study seeks to describe and interpret the discourse of the peace protests. The 21st century discourse of peace protests emerged as a reaction to the discourse of the ‘Global War on Terror’. The core research question of the book is, "How does the discourse of peace protests deconstruct the discourse of the 'Global War on Terror'?". As the study moves on, it reveals that the peace protests not only show the frustration of the world with the current wars but they also reflect a growing disillusionment in the West with capitalism. In the larger context, the peace protests seem to dovetail with other catalysing forces of change in the form of the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street movement which are trying to effect ‘redistribution of power’ in the world. The study is useful for the students and scholars of various disciplines of social sciences such as linguistics, sociolinguistics, semiotics, sociology, media discourse, peace studies, history and psychology.
