GYPSY IDENTITIES 1500-2000: From Egipcyans and Moon-men to the Ethnic Romany

London and New York: Routledge, 2004. First Edition. Hardcover. "Gypsies have lived in England since the early sixteenth century, yet considerable confusion and disagreement remain over the precise identity of the group. The question 'Who are the Gypsies?' is still asked and the debates about the positioning and permanence of the boundary between Gypsy and non-Gypsy are contested as fiercely today as at any time before. This study locates these debates in their historical perspective, tracing the origins and reproduction of the various ways of defining and representing the Gypsy from the early sixteenth century to the present day." Octavo: 313 p. with 17 plates. Original printed boards; issued without a dust jacket. Some sparse marginalia; otherwise very good. Very good. Item #74355
