'Gypsy Identities is informative, thought provoking and innovative, and should find a home in every university research library, and on bookshelves in the homes of many Gypsies, Gypsy scholars, politicians and public servants. It will provide a great stimulus for seminar discussions about Gypsies, and not just in Gypsy studies courses. Gypsy Identities also has merit as a potential standard work in multicultural studies, and should be considered for adoption for either teaching or reference purposes across the social sciences and humanities.' - David J. Nemeth, Romani Studies 'Be warned: Gypsy Identities 1500-2000 (Taylor and Francis), by David Mayall, challenges the grand narrative, as postmodernists would say, of the great-Roma-trek-from-India discourse' - David Altheer, The Times
