In 1988 the author was sent down to Marseilles as leader of a team investigating the societal impact of the epidemic that had struck the seaport city. This book is one of the results of his investigation, detailing the community's response to the epidemic, and studying problem formation.

An outgrowth of a four-year study by Paillard and his research team, this volume describes the societal impact of a full-force epidemic on a large, diversified Mediterranean seaport city. In addition to his straightforward, empirical reports presented elsewhere, the author has here chosen to present a reflexive, qualitative study in narrative form, portraying the sociologist as participant-observer, and providing the reader with a pioneering study on problem formation and moral panic. For this first English edition, Paillard has added an appendix on methodology.</p>
