“Silvia Tabusca's book on the Roma peoples and their culture is a fascinating account of the history and life of communities radically different from mainstream modern society and its guiding lights. With appealing deep sympathy for the human beings involved, the author makes a compelling case for putting an end to the ubiquitous historic injustices of discrimination and for the tailoring of a legal regime to the specific needs and aspirations of the Roma, based on the global appreciation of cultural diversity within the framework of a world public order of human dignity”.

Professor Dr. iur. Siegfried Wiessner, Director, Graduate Program in Intercultural Human Rights, St. Thomas University School of Law, Miami, Florida; former Chair of the International Law Association's Committee on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
