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 Liégeois 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.
