By Andrew Herscher

While the development of structure has a spot in architectural discourse, its destruction, usually noticeable as incompatible with the very thought of "culture," has been missed in theoretical and ancient dialogue. Responding to this forget, Herscher examines the case of the previous Yugoslavia and particularly, Kosovo, the place focusing on structure has been a well-known measurement of political violence. instead of reading violence opposed to structure as an insignificant illustration of "deeper" social, political, or ideological dynamics, Herscher unearths it to be a sort of cultural construction, irreducible to its contexts and formative of the identities and businesses that likely endure on it as explanations. concentrating on the actual websites the place violence is inflicted and the place its matters and items are articulated, the ebook lines the intersection of violence and structure from socialist modernization, via ethnic and nationalist clash, to postwar reconstruction.
