This chapter uses the Research Programme to explore further the approach of social scientists to issues of poverty, deprivation, structure, and behaviour. It builds on the earlier work by Deacon, which took a collective biographical approach to explaining changing ideologies of welfare reform, focusing on Richard Titmuss, Charles Murray, and Lawrence Mead, along with Oscar Lewis, William Julius Wilson, and William Ryan. This chapter looks particularly at the work of social scientists who were openly hostile, or at best marginal, to the Research Programme: Harriet Wilson, Adrian Sinfield, and Peter Townsend.

Keywords:   Research Programme, social scientists, poverty, deprivation, structure, behaviour, Deacon, welfare reform
