From transmitted deprivation to social exclusion

This chapter surveys the final years of the Research Programme, from the publication of the Third Report of the Joint Working Party, to the appearance of the first books in the Heinemann series in the early 1980s. It explores attempts by the Joint Working Party to respond to referees' reports on the projects that had been funded, and evaluate the Research Programme as a whole. It traces efforts to compare projects across the two main themes of familial processes and socioeconomic factors, and the commissioning of the final report from Muriel Brown and Nicola Madge. It further explores the attitude of the DHSS to the Research Programme, and the broader reaction to it through reviews of the early Heinemann books in academic journals, newspapers, and other periodicals.

Keywords:   Research Programme, Third Report, Joint Working Party, Heinemann series, familial processes, socioeconomic factors, Muriel Brown, DHSS
