Summary/Abstract: This book discusses the history of the Gypsy/Roma issue in the context of Hungarian history, relying on state policy documents. The authors track events and narratives from the historical turning point of 1945 to the present. The volume argues that despite various political changes, official policies towards the Roma have been characterized by continuous exclusion. Written from an equality and human rights perspective, the volume breaks with the dominant discourse that has constructed the Roma from the viewpoint of the state and which, further, has long determined scholarly discourse.
