Symposium introduction to the journal. There is a clear, common thread among such seemingly un- related phenomena as the firebombing of Dresden in 1945, our military expedition in Indochina, the deaths of prisoners and guards at Attica and San Quentin, our celebration of guns, the shooting of students at South Carolina State and Southern University, and the deaths of four young Americans at Kent State University. The thread is more than the presence of violence. It is more than the unques- tionable excessiveness and lawlessness of the violence used. It is the acceptance of violence by the people.
