Gypsies : An Illustrated History, Paperback / softback Book

Gypsies : An Illustrated History Paperback / softback


The Gypsies have always been subject to myths about their origins, customs and social organization, in large part because of widespread ignorance.

In this lively and informative book, Jean-Pierre Liegeois redresses this shortcoming.

Starting with an examination of many of the legends about Gypsies throughout history, he goes on to trace their true origins and presents a sympathetic though not uncritical portrayal of the Gypsy people.

Finally, he discusses recent attempts by Gypsies to organize internationally.

Fully illustrated throughout, Gypsies: An Illustrated History is the ideal book for those who wish to learn about this unique people.
