Quatrième de couverture :

'A grand panorama of European gypsydom, its history, its present condition and future prospects' Jan Morris, Sunday Times

'Isabel Fonseca's book is a passionate and dramatic defense of the defenceless... This beautifully written story speaks in a way of all who do not want to submit to the reverses of fortune, who seek their own place on earth' Ryszard Kapuscinski

Fabled, feared, romanticised and reviled, the Gypsies - or Roma - are among the least understood people on earth. Now a diaspora of twelve million, their culture remains largely obscure. But in Isabel Fonseca they have found an eloquent witness.

In Bury Me Standing, alongside unforgettable portraits of individuals - the poet, the politician, the child prostitute - Fonseca offers sharp insights in to the humour, language, wisdom and taboos of the Roma. She traces their exodus out of India 1,000 years ago and their astonishing history of persecution: enslaved by the princes of medieval Romania; massacred by the Nazis; forcible assimilated by the communist regimes; and evicted from their settlements by nationalist mobs in Eastern Europe and, most recently, in Western Europe as well. Whether as handy scapegoats or figments of the romantic imagination, the Gypsies have always been with us - but never before have they been brought so vividly to life.

'A remarkable achievement. A gripping, original work' Edward W. Said

Featuring a new afterword by the author

Présentation de l'éditeur :

A masterful work of personal reportage, this volume is also a vibrant portrait of a mysterious people and an essential document of a disappearing culture.

Description du livre Random House USA Inc, United States, 1996. Paperback. Etat : New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. After the revolutions of 1989, Isabel Fonseca lived and traveled with the Gypsies of Bulgaria, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the former Yugoslavia, Romainia, and Albania - listening to their stories and recording their attempts to become something more than despised outsiders. In Bury Me Standing, alongside unforgettable portraits of individuals - the poet, the politician, the child prostitute - are vivid insights into the wit, language, wisdom, and taboos of the Roma. In a compelling narrative account of this large and landless minority, Fonseca also traces their long-ago exodus out of India and their history of relentless persecution: enslaved by the princes of medieval Romania; massacred by the Nazis in what the Roma call the Devouring ; forcibly assimilated by the communist regime; and, most recently, evicted from their settlements by nationalistic mobs in the new democracies of the East, and under violent attack in the Western countries to which many have fled.
