Understanding the Dimensions of Terrorism.
Goldberg, Joseph E.
Perspectives on Political Science, v20 n2 p78-88 Spr 1991
Criticizes an article which suggests that terrorism is defined by the onlooker's political persuasion. Insists that terrorism, while difficult to define, is easy to recognize whether or not the observer approves of the perpetrators. Urges that judgment not be clouded so that wrongs appear right. Argues that states must balance the security of the many with individual protection. (DK)
