Book Description

In The Family Fund, first published in 1980, Bradshaw discusses the introduction of The Family Fund- a grant given to families in response of the discovery of the damages caused by the Thalidomide drug. He examines all aspects of the Fund including its origins, aims, publicity and its future. This text is ideal for students of sociology.
