    MOBI Yaron Matras ☆ I Met Lucky People ePUB µ I Met Epub / ☆ lucky download, people epub, I Met book, I Met Lucky People PDF/EPUBThis book was a bit frustrating to read  That doesn't mean it was a bad book it was uite a good book from the level of its technical competence  Yet it is not only competence by which a book is to be judged  For one there is the larger political context of a book and this book is full of discussion of the identity politics of the Gypsies and how it is that uniting gypsies together in Europe and North America has been an immensely difficult task  The author makes grand sweeping statements about the experience of the Gypsies including euating the experience of the Gypsies with that of the Jews in World War II as a way of ramping up the sympathy for them which is not an entirely accurate view of history and is clearly done with political motivations  The author also spends a great deal of time talking about her experiences working

    MOBI Yaron Matras ☆ I Met Lucky People ePUB µ I Met Epub / ☆ lucky download, people epub, I Met book, I Met Lucky People PDF/EPUBAs someone who's really only read one book related to Romani culture a book on gypsy jazz I thought this was a good accessible look into Romani history and culture Not overly romanticized except for some personal anecdotes the tone is academic without being too full of special jargon Especially interesting to read in terms of how Romani relate to stereotypes and outsider identity Insightful too in terms of a brief overview of the terms used and potentially misused in identifying and relating the Romani to other groups of people who are known to travel
