""Karl-Markus Gauss, preface#xD;The editors provide a broad overview of the social position of Roma, Yeniche and Travelers in Austria and in some other European countries. Living conditions and life contexts, languages ​​and cultural productions are just as much a topic as committed rebellion and organized visualization of these minorities (""minorities"" in the words of Ceija Stojka). Well-known scientists from various disciplines and activists have networked for this purpose, participated in workshops, lectures and conferences at the University of Innsbruck and make their decades of experience and research results available for this anthology."
