Jo Richardson explores the extent to which modes of discourse reflect antipathy towards gypsies and travellers, and control and shape the treatment of this minority group by the rest of society. The focus is housing policy, but her discussion has a wide application.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The valuble primary text resources and their clear interpretation keep the reader on an easy-to-follow argumentation track... [I]t is a useful volume both for policy makers and practitioners but also for sociolinguists." -- Nora Teller * European Journal of Housing Policy *
"A well intentioned book that makes a fair selection of recent press reports and other ephemeral sources to show that there is an overarching offical and popular discourse that emphasises the need to survey and control Gypsies. There is enough added to the historical record here to ensure that in 30 years' time students will be embarrassing her by quoting from this book, as she quotes from mine." -- Thomas Acton * Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development *
"Overall, this is a very interesting book, which does well to underline that the discourse of the media, politicians and the public is one which highlights the cost and problem of Gypsies, rather than their needs." -- Amy Claridge * Political Studies Review *
