Overview

Written by Gypsy scholar Ian Hancock, this collection of his selected writings examines Romani history, culture, language, and politics. A compendium of Hancock’s views of the Romani experience, this account covers topics ranging from responses to the Romani Holocaust and Romani religion to anti-Gypsy racism and oppression. Giving a voice to an often misunderstood community, this record includes personal stories, persuasive research, heartfelt criticisms, and sincere advice. Informative and dynamic, this volume strives to debunk the myths and prejudices surrounding the Roma and to examine how Romani identity has been formed in the course of their long history.
