Having "disappeared" from the world's consciousness during the Communist period, the issue of the gypsy populations of Russia and Eastern Europe has once more become important as the newly independent, nationalist states of the region increasingly victimise and harass the gypsies and as, even in Western Europe, intolerance of gypsy refugees grows. By the nature of gypsy society (closed, preliterate, wary) it has always been extremely difficult for academics or other outsiders to describe its history. In this book, concentrating on the 20th century, with particular emphasis on the gypsies' fate under the Nazis and their persecution under the Communists, Professor Crowe presents a large amount of new material on this resilient and mysterious minority.
