Abstract

The various types and uses of terrorism have given rise to much misunderstanding and confusion. Here the author attempts to clarify the concept and evaluate its role in revolutionary warfare. He examines in detail the place of terroristic practices in Viet Cong tactics and finds that, contrary to the perception of American policy-makers, they were employed selectively and with restraintm clearly secondary in importance to the strategy of ideological and organizational restructuring of the countryside.
