In this unique anthology, Romani poets and writers from twenty countries address a devastating legacy of slavery, pogroms, expulsions, hangings, fire bombings andgenocide. Forty-three poems and prose extracts, most appearing in English for the first time, are arranged alongside an 800-year chronology of repression. Professor Ian Hancock's introduction traces the growth of a written literature out of an oral tradition. What emerges is a portrait of a people struggling to preserve their identity in a hostile world.
