Abstract:

When the SARS virus began its spread from southern China around the world
in spring 2003, it caught regional and international health officials by
surprise. The SARS epidemic itself lasted for only a few months, whereas
its treatment, in communicative terms, keeps providing us with important
lessons that can prepare us all for the much larger pandemic that many are
predicting will eventually occur. While the medical aspects of SARS are now
relatively well understood, the discursive rhetorical dimensions are much
less so.  As an international epidemic, SARS arrived in a number of
distinctive societies with the result that different communities handled
the crisis in different ways, some far more effectively than others.
Accordingly, the 12 chapters in <i>The Social Construction of SARS</i> are
studies of how a major health-related crisis was understood and dealt with
from a communicative perspective in such diverse places as Hong Kong,
mainland China, Singapore, Taiwan, Canada and the United States during the
SARS outbreak.
