An eloquent account of one of the most troubling forms of racism still haunting the world: Romaphobia. This book examines the root causes, as well as the experiences of Roma communities in the UK and in continental Europe."--Katharine Quarmby, author of No Place to Call Home: Inside the Real Lives of Gypsies and Travellers"

McGarry provides the first extensive scholarly exploration of Romaphobia and vividly outlines the magnitude of the challenge to overcome stereotypes deeply embedded in European culture. Romaphobia also addresses the relatively recent innovation of Roma people and organizations actively participating in public debates about themselves.
--Martin Kovats, former special adviser on Roma issues to the European Commission"

McGarry contributes to our understanding of the root causes of inequality between Roma and non-Roma. He shows that Roma exclusion is rooted in the nation-building process in Europe and the way national identities have been constructed in relation to territory.

--Iulius Rostas, Central European University"

McGarry skillfully explains the complex phenomenon and history of Romaphobia in contemporary Europe. He offers a thoughtful and accessible inquiry into this persistent form of racism, and a powerful critique of how it continues to be tolerated in present-day Europe.
--Huub van Baar, author of The European Roma"

Draws on original research to examine enduring racism against Roma communities in Europe. Essential reading for all concerned about racism and the rise of far-right politics that we are witnessing across Europe today.
--Imogen Tyler, author of Revolting Subjects: Social Abjection and Resistance in Neoliberal Britain"

The strength of McGarry s book lies in the exploration of a broader, transnational research agenda that seeks to awake Romani studies from its splendid isolation, leaving one with the desire to learn more about the roots of Romaphobia.
--Lilla Farkas, Migration Policy Group"

A timely analysis of how fear and loathing stultifies social progress. McGarry offers an excellent examination of the mechanisms of this enduring and despicable form of racism.
--Annabel Tremlett, University of Portsmouth"

A beautifully written text that is both inspiring and daunting; it does not shade or minimize the numerous challenges that are facing Romani communities in Europe, but it also offers signs of agency, empowerment, and hope. This book is destined to become a benchmark for a new generation of critical scholars. --Colin Clark, author of Here to Stay: the Gypsies and Travellers of Britain"
