A Minority and the State: Travellers in Britain in the Twentieth Century

by Becky Taylor - £14.99  Manchester University Press (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780719091261 | ISBN 10: 0719091268

This is a new paperback edition of Becky Taylor's history of Britain's travelling communities in the twentieth century. It draws together detailed archival research at local and national level to explore the impact of state and legislative developments on Travellers, as well as their experience of missions, education, war and welfare. It also covers legal developments affecting Travellers and crucially argues that their history must not be dealt with in isolation but as part of a wider history of British minorities.
 
This book will be of interest to scholars and students concerned with minority groups, the welfare state and the expansion of government, as well as general readers and practitioners working with Travellers.
