Across the United Kingdom and continental Europe, multiple agencies police Gypsies and Travellers. Their goal is to remove them from a given jurisdiction, by force if necessary. In the first comprehensive study of the relationship between these policing agencies and the nomadic peoples they aim to control, Zoë James shows how this relationship has shaped Gypsy and Traveller identities and exacerbated their social exclusion and victimization. Theoretically informed and empirically grounded, this book sheds new light on how we police diversity as well as how Gypsy and Traveller communities face the realities of their way of life.
