A Time of Terror: How Democratic Societies Respond to Revolutionary Violence

By J. Bowyer Bell
Basic Books, 1978
304 pp. $10.95
Purchase

Bowyer Bell's account of the recent experience of open societies in dealing with their vulnerabilities to terrorist attacks complements his earlier studies of what motivates terrorists. His counsel of patience in the name of libertarian values is convincing in the light of the limited scope of most terrorist actions and of historical precedents.
