The purpose of this paper is to examine accounts of the Bosnian genocides by applying Lonnie Athens' violentization theory [Athens, L. (2003). Violentization in larger social context. In L. Athens & J.T. Ulmer (Eds.), Violent acts and violentization: assessing, applying, and developing Lonnie Athens' theories (pp. 1-41). Boston: Elsevier Science] and the circumplex. theory from family therapy [Olson, D.H. (1995). Family systems: Understanding your roots. In R.D. Day, K.R. Gilbert, B.H. Settles, & W.R. Burr (Eds.), Research and theory in family science (pp. 131-153). Pacific Grove, CA: Brooks/Cole., Olson, D.H. (2000). Clinical Rating Scale (CRS) for the Circumplex Model of Marital and Family Systems [Brochure]. Minneapolis: Life Innovations]. Following Winton's [Winton M.A. (2005). A circumplex. model of genocide.

Suggestions for further research adding a comparative approach are addressed. (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
