By Andrew Herscher

While the development of structure has a spot in architectural discourse, its destruction, in general obvious as incompatible with the very inspiration of "culture," has been ignored in theoretical and ancient dialogue. Responding to this forget, Herscher examines the case of the previous Yugoslavia and specifically, Kosovo, the place focusing on structure has been a popular measurement of political violence. instead of studying violence opposed to structure as a trifling illustration of "deeper" social, political, or ideological dynamics, Herscher unearths it to be a sort of cultural creation, irreducible to its contexts and formative of the identities and corporations that possible endure on it as factors. concentrating on the actual websites the place violence is inflicted and the place its matters and items are articulated, the publication lines the intersection of violence and structure from socialist modernization, via ethnic and nationalist clash, to postwar reconstruction.
