Editorial Reviews

Review

."..an intelligent and important book which improves our understanding of a minority culture as it encountered a new code of intolerance from a "host" society." Canadian Journal of History

Book Description

The Gypsy is traditionally portrayed as a black-eyed, tousle-haired savage from a distant land who makes a living by deceit and parasitism on the host society. This book critically examines the nature and source of such stereotypes, locating the image of the wild but often romantic Romany in various works of fiction and the writings of lorists and gypsiologists.
