Summary "One of the greatest challenges during the enlargement process of the European Union towards the east is how the issue of the Roma or Gypsies is tackled. This enormous social and political problem cannot be solved without proper historical studies like this book." "Viorel Achim presents and interprets the long history of the Roma, including slavery, the process of integration and assimilation into the majority population, as well as the historical roots of the marginalization of the Gypsies. Special attention is devoted to the process of emancipation in the mid-nineteenth century, the deportation of Roma to Transnistria during the Antonescu regime between 1942 and 1944, the policy toward the Roma in the decades after the Second World War, and its bearing on the situation of the Roma population in today's Romania."--Jacket
