The author began researching the wars of secession in Yugoslavia in fulfillment of a promise that two undergraduate Serbian political science students extracted from him in a cafe at York University in Toronto in 1997. The author's academic and personal relationships and research background mediated and identified the salient points associated with identity and responsibility in Bosnia. Emmanuel Levinas, the move from the ethical to the political is a totalizing one wherein the universal must be expressed. It is this ethos that David Campbell identifies as being imperative to an understanding of the war in Bosnia. In Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamozov, Ivan argues bitterly that there can be no justification for the disaster that befalls the innocent. For John Caputo, the imperative to obligation takes place outside of any properly ethical ontological order.
