Book Description

Oct. 30 1999 0900458992 978-0900458996 3rd Revised edition
Gypsies and Travllers in Britain are at a crisis point where the survival of their way of life into the new millennium is in doubt. This book describes the Gypsy and Traveller population in Britain as it is, as well as the stereotypes that abound and show how, although harassed as a minority, they have not, in practice, had the protection which the law should afford to minorities. Gypsies and Travellers are still "on the verge" of society. It discusses the legislation that has been brought in to control their movements and reviews their relationships with the police as well as local and central government agencies. Finally, it looks at the emerging interest the European organizations are taking in the nomad populations. This is a new book with a new title and new co-authors but some of the material from the earlier editions of "On the Verge" have been retained as has the intention of producing a readable text for the general public as well as those involved with Gypsies and Travellers in their work. There are completely new chapters on New Travellers, Private Sites, Scotland and Wales. Many of the examples of harassment, prejudice and media treatment are also new and, there are some new government initiatives and court decisions.
