Familiar Strangers: Gypsy Life In America, by Sway, Marlene

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From Library Journal:

In her insightful and detailed look at Gypsies throughout the world, sociologist Sway (University of Alabama at Birmingham) presents a people who have maintained independence by adhering so strictly to cultural dictates that they remain a rare pariah group. The Gypsies have steadfastly preserved their outsider role through a solid network of families, strict set of religious beliefs, community-controlled judicial system, elaborate kinship structure, well-defined set of rules governing entrepreneurial jurisdictions, willingness to be nomadic, and flexibility in occupation. This well-researched work, based on published studies as well as Sway's own research, should interest curious lay readers as much as scholars, its primary audience. Suzanne W. Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology, Alfred, N.Y.
