Description

Essential reading for those who want to develop greater knowledge and awareness of the history, culture and lifestyles of GRT people.

There are many misconceptions about the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community in the British Isles. Little is understood of their culture and they are often marginalised by society. This book dispels many of the myths and gives a compassionate and empathetic view of the daily struggles they face including discrimination, racism and poverty. It also reviews criticisms directed at them and determines whether these are justified. Services are analysed to establish what works and what is weak. Packed with expert opinions from professionals working in the field and case studies and vignettes, garnered from personal interviews by the author with GRT people. 

Drawing from a wide range of perspectives from both inside and outside the community, this book provides readers with all the key elements required to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of these remarkable communities and their cultures.

Your Reviews on this book

A much needed and most valuable exposition of the vibrant culture and shameful abuses suffered by one of Britain's most marginalised and disadvantaged minorities.
