This first anthropological study of gypsies is the result of an extensive socio-anthropological survey covering twenty-five countries of Europe, America and the erstwhile USSR. This is a vivid account of the Banjara and other nomadic communities of India and the world. The scholar has not only applied successfully the traditional techniques of research of participant and nonparticipant observation, but also his own approach and methodology.

The book is based on his eleven- year long research centred on the gypsies, who have preserved and lead their nomadic or seminomadic lives throughout the world, even in advanced countries.
