'We are the Romani people' is intended primarily as a source book for teachers, social workers and others interacting with Romanies ('Gypsies') in - or from - Central and Eastern Europe, but will be invaluable to anybody who wants to know more about these fascinating people who left India a thousand years ago. It presents the most current findings about Romani origins, an overview of politics, culture, language and cuisine, a surprising list of notable people of Romani descent, a description of the centuries-long period of slavery in the Balkans and a brief description of the Romani Holocaust. Especially useful is the chapter on how to interact with Romanies, and the list of recommended readings. Each chapter is accompanied by a list of questions, making it suitable as a textbook for use in class.
