This book was an impulse buy for me, but it has come in very handy with my research into Romani Studies. With multiple articles, some regarding Romanipen Vs. State Law, and others just dealing with the culture itself, it has become required reading in my opinion for anyone interested in learning more about the Romanies.

This book is a badly written report. Firstly, it focuses mainly on only two roma groups, the Finnish Kaale and Canadian gypsies. Despite this, the author is too afraid to say anything specific, so most results of breaking any gypsy laws are left vague and unspecified. Second, many things are excluded in the explanations and research, such as women's roles and things like Divanos and Bandoliers. The book also glances at women's and family roles, and does not address any actual taboos broken or transgressions perpetuated. I found nothing like the information in the summary, all of which can be found in five seconds from reliable sites using google.

This material gives a great deal of stimulus to any humanitarian anthropological interests about gypsies. Written in language that a lay person can understand, it is stimulating and interesting. In fact, I find it difficult to put it down.
