Abstract

Case study of the Gypsy ethnic group and their articulation with the economy. The nature of the connection between economic action and structure and ethnic identities receives here a long overdue and incisive re-examination. The question is addressed theoretically by revisiting the 'race and class' debate and by a wide-ranging review of the contexts in which the conjuncture of ethnicity-economy is worked out.
