Using a detailed study of `gypsies' in the American South, this new book examines basic concepts of ethnicity among children and the impact of attending community schools.

The study group, known as the Irish Travellers, is a mixture of Irish, Romany and American descent. The study includes an historical overview of Irish Travellers in the United States, an analysis of terminology within the field of ethnic studies, a review of research on ethnic socialization and the experiences of elementary school children.
