Description
Partly because of their mysterious origins, and partly because of the romance of nomadic life, the Roma have long fascinated Europeans, but because they resist assimilation, having survived as a distinct people for over a thousand years, they have also been the victims of nationalism and xenophobia. First published in 1995, Isabel Fonseca's close study focuses particularly on the gypsies in Eastern Europe (an estimated 6 million), and their future as a distinct race. Researching the book, Fonseca learned Romany and stayed with the gypsies, becoming deeply involved with their lives, and befriending several gypsy kings.

"Isabel Fonseca's book is literally a revelation: a hidden world—at once ignored and secretive, persecuted and unknown—is uncovered in these absorbing pages. She writes with grace, insight and passion, and peoples her text with vibrant characters brought vividly to life. It is a magnificent achievement."—Salman Rushdie
