The first in-depth study in English of an East European Gypsy community.

More Gypsies have been killed in racist attacks in the first post-Communist years than in all the time since World War Two. This study is about the refusal of one group of Hungarian Gypsies – the Rom Gypsies – to abandon their way of life and accept assimilation, despite persecution, hostility, and racism.
The core of the book is based on the author’s 18-month observation of daily life in a Gypsy settlement, describing the cultivation, celebration and reinvention of cultural difference and diversity of a population without a homeland.

Large paperback (8vo), pp xviii, 302, illustrated.

Westview Press, 1997
