In Search of the True Gypsy by Wim Willems
Book DescriptionIt has only been recognised tardily and with reluctance that during the Second World War hundreds of thousands of itinerants met the same horrendous fate as Jews and other victims of Nazism. Gypsies appear to appeal to the imagination simply as social outcasts and scapegoats or, in a flattering but no more illuminating light, as romantic outsiders. In this study, contemporary notions about Gypsies are traced back as far as possible to their roots, in an attempt to lay bare why stigmatisation of gypsies, or rather groups labelled as such, has continuned from the distant past even to today.

Books By Author Wim Willems
Living in the City, Hardback (January 2012)
This volume devotes attention to the institutional arrangements of cities, examining the extent to which institutional design influenced the settlement and integration of immigrants, as well as the desire of 'natives' to remain.
Gypsies and Other Itinerant Groups, Hardback (March 1998)
By focusing on processes of social construction, stigmatization and categorization, the authors offer new insights into the development of government policies towards itinerants in general and the ethnicization of some in particular. They analyze the western images and representations of gypsies focusing on their functions for the labour market.
