Interesting, but it's broken down by country, and each country follows the same general line, so once you've read the first section, you may as well have read them all.
He delves a lot into the histories of the individual countries, sometimes not mentioning the Roma for pages and pages. Honestly, the whole thing feels a bit like a brief overview of each country's history with a particular interest in how some of these events affected the Roma. This may be something that only bothers me, but I jus
How a people who started out with unique favorable trades changed to a most despised group. Good information on the circular causes of the downward spiral based on fear of the Ottoman Empire/outsiders and dark skin until finally the Romas did reflect what they were despised for. A little too many statistics for my taste and repetitive but otherwise interesting and informative.

An good research resource for studying the Rom.
