    1. This is an average introduction into the study of the Roma/Gypsies. It is written in elementary language with a lot of basic information. I had a feeling it was meant for young children to read. It got quite condescending in some parts, especially when it set out to teach people how to deal with Roma, and emphasized over and over that this is a culture that is different. It was also full of what Roma/Gypsies are not, when more information of the culture and such would have been better. Positive [...]

    2. In wanted to learn more about the social aspects of this ethnicity, and this book was an "ok" introduction. Although short, it helped me understand more their perspective and I think our society has made many serious mistakes with their discrimination.Today, in Romania at least, I feel like Romanies are not even given a chance. Too bad this book focused so much on language, cuisine and grammar, aspects that were not of particular interest to me. However, I did enjoy reading the chapters regardin [...]

    3. Within the field of Romani studies, this work makes a wonderful introduction; it will certainly wipe out the stereotypical images that most of us have of the Romani people ("tramps and thieves") and will open our eyes to their complex and painful history, their language and their culture. It really is a great place to start for anyone who wishes to no more about Romanies. I highly recommend it.

    4. The problem with a lot of books about the Romani people is that they are written by non-Romanis. This is an excellent, scholarly work written by a Romani man.Although "We Are the Romani People" is written to be used as a text book in schools or a guide for social workers or others who work with Romani communities, I found it very accessible -- for reference, I am not highly educated and I do not have a background in anthropology or social studies. The language and concepts used should be easy to [...]

    6. This is a book in it's own class and it's a shame that more people won't have read it. It tells you everything you could/would ever want to know about the Romani people (Gypsies). Of course I have a special palce in my heart for these people so I loved finding out more about them, especially from an educated Roma like Ian Hancock.
