A HISTORY OF THE ROMANI PEOPLE by Hristo Kyuchukov

A HISTORY OF THE ROMANI PEOPLE

Age Range: 9 - 11

KIRKUS REVIEW

Writing in a collective personal voice, Kyuchukov and the director of a Romani research center offer brief comments on their people’s history, customs and culture. Sandwiched between statements from the co-authors and a world population map, single-topic spreads offer both general information and plenty of captioned photos, both old and contemporary. Readers will come away with a clear idea of what the Romani have in common and of the diverse adaptations they have made in order to survive in the many countries to which they have scattered in their thousand-year history. The inside slant gives this quick once-over unusual authority—though Anne Wallace Sharp’s Gypsies (2002) is only one of several more detailed studies. (Nonfiction. 9-11)
