Los gitanos by Jan Yoors( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este libro se escribió como protesta contra el olvido, como un grito de amor por esta raza de extraños que han vivido entre nosotros durante siglos pero que siempre se han mantenido aparte. A los doce años, Yoors abandonó el hogar de su familia para unirse a una kumpania de romaníes, atraído por la vida al aire libre y la libertad de que gozaban. Yoors nos desvela todos los aspectos de la vida cotidiana de sus amigos los gitanos, incluso aquellos rasgos más refractarios a la comprensión de antropólogos y sociólogos, y también del ciudadano común. Con él descubrimos el concepto de familia, los modos de subsistencia, las creencias, los códigos de conducta y el sentido del honor de este pueblo nómada que continúa viviendo entre nosotros. El libro nos acerca a una cultura empeñada en persistir, que ha resistido todos los embates naturales y todas las tentativas de ahuyentarla o de borrarla de la faz de la Tierra

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This nuanced portrait details the rhythms of life among the Romani; the exceptional occurrences of birth, marriage, and death; and the highly codified system of conduct of the Gypsies. Roadside caravans, evening meals, multifamily feasts, village fairs, convocations of the Kris (the Romani tribunal of justice), and wedding celebrations: all are powerfully evoked in both word and image. -- Dustjacket
