A close examination of how images of Travelers in Ireland have been created and distorted over the centuries. Hayes combines a survey of the existing literature with a postmodern conceptualization of Irish Travellers as 'the Other.' The author's understanding of the growing subfield of Roma studies also allows him to place the Travellers within a larger European context... The future of the Travellers remains uncertain, but Hayes sees the increasing number of Travellers autobiographies and the growth of Traveller community organizations as providing an authentic voice for this marginalized people.
