Gypsies and Other Itinerant Groups

A Socio-Historical Approach

Gebonden Engels 1998 9780333682418
Verwachte levertijd ongeveer 8 werkdagen


In this volume the authors present an alternative approach to the history of gypsies and travelling groups in western Europe. By focusing on processes of social construction, stigmatization and categorization, they offer new insights into the development of government policies towards itinerants in general and the ethnicization of some of these groups in particular. They analyze the western images and representations of gypsies and other itinerant groups, at the same time focusing on their functions for the labour market. By doing so, they add a new chapter to the field of social history.
