First Edition

Becky Taylor

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Draws together legal developments, education, accomodation and welfare issues to show how travellers were affected by twentieth-century developments
  • Offers a new perspective on British ethnic history by arguing that Travellers' experiences should not by understood as the history of a nomadic group but in terms of the wider history of British minorities
  • The book adds a new dimension to the histories of the British state and welfare by viewing them in terms of how expansion affected a minority group
