"This is an important book. Anyone interested in Roma in this country or elsewhere should read it." Traveller.
"Everyone has an opinion on Gypsies, and no one knows any. The opinions are almost always bad. Unfortunately, there's more published information available on the Martians than on Gypsies. Into the breach comes Angus Fraser with an accessible, well-informed introduction." Voice Literary Review.
"A particularly fascinating study, not least because of the author's precise and engaging use of the English language ... An absolutely essential foundation for embarking on this rapidly growing field." Contemporary Sociology.
"An important and welcomed contribution to the study of Gypsies." Man: The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
