Book Description:

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

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