Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the transition from hospitals to community care and also presents the role of the United Nations in countering terrorism. Large isolated hospitals 'rising unmistakable and daunting out of the countryside' were for a hundred years the dominant response to mental illnesses. When other contacts and friendships did not materialise as expected, 'Community Care' was officially transmogrified into 'Care in the Community', means care outside the traditional hospitals irrespective of the extent of community in its most important social network sense. The key obstacle to the ability of the United Nations to play a constructive role in countering terrorism is the absence of an internationally agreed definition. The United Nations has had a major negative influence on the ability to fight international terrorism. The sooner this battle cuts loose from the UN framework, the sooner the war will be won.

Keywords: community care; terrorism; traditional hospitals; United Nations
