The liberal governments of this world have increasingly come to find them• selves attempting to cope with the extraordinary explosion of demands both legitimate and illegitimate-that defines contemporary politics, For most of those who object to this or that policy, dissent takes constitutionally-or at least tacitly-acceptable forms. However, for a small segment of those rejecting not a policy or a particular government, but rather a regime and "established legality"3 itself, the language of dissent is violence and the blunt instrument for its expression is all too often terrorism. 4
