This chapter examines the social motive behind ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. The costs of ethnic cleansing were great for both the victims and the victimizers. The perpetrators destroyed not only the homes, the communities, and the lives of people who had been neighbors, but also the social fabric and cultural conventions upon which they, too, had depended.
