    One thought on “The Gypsies”

    1. الآن علمت تاريخهم الحافل بالإثارة والتميز والصمود ، يرسم المؤلف صورة للغجر فيشبههم بلوحة جمالية وقد أثروا وتأثروا بالثقافات المحيطة من حولهم ،ويتناول ظهور الغجر الغامض في أوربا من تسعة قرون مضت ، حيث رفض الغجر طوال هذه المدة الانخراط في حياة المجتمعات التي يعيشون فيها ،وظل [...]

    2. I read this book because it was highly recommended in the bibliography of Bury Me Standing by Isabel Fonseca. Fraser's book is a good, serious, scholarly book for someone who wants to know more about the Roma, who are mostly called “Gypsies” in this book, which was published in 1990 in England. However, this not as gripping or dramatic as the Fonseca book, and of course not up-to-date.I imagine the ideal reader for this book as a university undergraduate who wants to write something about th [...]

    3. I found this fascinating -- I'm trying to trace a rumour that my paternal grandmother had gypsy blood, and this book renewed my resolve. I liked the way the author tackles uncertainties and doesn't try to ram his own theories down your throat but presents all the options. Scholarly but very readable.

    4. Although the title had me dubious about this work’s academic merit (the terms “Roma” or “Romani” usually preferred to “Gypsy” by serious academics, in my experience), my doubts were quickly assuaged upon starting the book. Within a few pages it was apparent that this is certainly an academically thorough, well-researched and serious scholarly work, in which the author demonstrates a deep understanding of linguistics, history the social sciences as well as dabbling in such fields as [...]

    5. This is an excellent general history on the experience of the Gypsies since their entry into Europe centuries ago. If you are curious about "real" Gypsies, this book is a must read. One of the testaments to its scholarship and authority is the numerous time other authors of Roma studies cite it.

    6. This text makes a fine effort at trying to determine the origins of the Roma people. Further, the reader finds out how this minority was treated as they first entered Europe and about how the quality of their treatment declined dramatically throughout the Middle Ages and Modern Era.

    7. Foarte superficial tratat capitolul despre Holocaust. In ultima treime stilul isi pirerde farmecul, devine tehnic si sec, iar lectura ultimei parti e posibila cu chinuri din partea cititorului. Primele capitole sunt, insa, fascinante

    8. Un studiu extrem de bine documentat si obiectiv. O lucrare obligatorie pentru cei interesati a afla de unde au venit si incotro se indreapta tiganii.

    9. This book is a fascinating story about the history gypsies, from their start in India, and gypsy dispora from Europe to the United States in present time.
