With a comparative focus on Britain and the Czech Republic, it considers their contemporary experiences and needs in the context of their relationship with the rest of society. It is a must-read for those concerned with racism, social and ethnic exclusion, nationalism and the development of a European identity and citizenship. Angus Bancroft provides an outline of Gypsy life across Europe and explores ghettoization, racial violence, legislative change, immigration and asylum. These issues are placed in the context of national development, changes in European society, modernity, post-modernity and globalization. The book also applies sociological theories to the relationship between Gypsies and European societies and the emergence of European institutions and identities.
