In 1993 the architect, essayist and former mayor of Belgrade Bogdan Bogdanović published a collection of essays entitled The City and Death which contained reflections on the origins of urbicide. By this the author meant the wilful destruction of urban infrastructure and urban culture and the partial extermination, partial expulsion of the city's inhabitants, a fate that befell, among others, the cities of Vukovar, Mostar and Sarajevo during the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s.
