Questioning Gypsy Identity: Ethnic Narratives in Britain and America critically examines stories of Gypsy lives against the framework of social theories that illustrate how identity arises out of the cultural complexity of individual biographies, families, and communities. Growing up in an English Gypsy family, Brian Belton offers readers a unique perspective, writing what are essentially stories of people_how they are made, their social force, and what they collectively create.

A Gypsy lineage -- The ethnic Gypsy -- Defining American Gypsies -- Historical genesis of American Gypsies -- Gypsies in social bondage -- Ethnicity as narrative -- Colonialism and the Gypsies -- Defining legislation -- Toward a new paradigm of gypsy identity.
