Previous chapters have traced a two-fold movement in understanding the phenomenon and concept of urbicide. In Chapters 1 and 2, I outlined the distinctive nature of such violence, beginning with an account of the manner in which it falls outside of conventional understandings of the destruction of the built environment according to notions such as military necessity, collateral damage, the destruction of cultural heritage, or the particular cultural characteristics of certain communities. I argued that the concept of urbicide enables us to perceive the distinctive logic of such violence and trace out its characteristics. Specifi cally, I argued that urbicide, understood as a distinct form of political violence, represented the destruction of the built environment qua that which comprises the conditions of possibility of a particular existential quality: heterogeneity.
