Examining the contributing factors in the shaping of Gypsy identity in the United Kingdom, this study evaluates both recent and historic tendencies that now misrepresent or overlook Gypsy culture. From examining the implications of skin color to demystifying the often confused history of nomadic settlements, this resource presents an insightful and important look into the identity, and perceptions of that identity, within Gypsy culture.
