Item description for Gypsies in the Ottoman Empire: Volume 22: A Contribution to the History of the Balkans (Interface Collection) by Elena Marushiakova, Veselin Popov, Donald Kenrick & Centre De Recherches Tsiganes (Universite Rene Descartes)...
The Roma presence in the European part of the Ottoman Empire in the Balkans is centuries old and it is not by accident that this region has often been called the second motherland of the Gypsies. This is the first book to be published on the history, ethnography, social structure and culture of the Gypsies in the Ottoman Empire. It is based on archival sources, mainly detailed tax registers, special laws, guild registers and court documents. Notes on Gypsies in books by foreign travelers are also included.
