Abstract : A study of civil disturbances between 1966-68 reveals wide differences with respect to the application of force by those in authority. These differences range from the application of no force in the hope that the demonstrators could be reasoned with, to the use of immediate suppressive means. The conclusion of the study is that it is the immediate show, not use, of overwhelming force that offers the greatest hope of restoring order in a minimum of time. (Author)
