“This is a unique book on several counts: The descriptive analyses and case studies are sensitive and accurate, the chosen references and paradigms fit and complement each other well. ...The sociological, socio-political, and anthropological explanations constitute an organic whole with self-reflection, and thus satisfy the epistemological requirements set forth by Bourdieu’s sociology of knowledge and by self-reflexive research methods. And the book has a strong ethical dimension.”

This account of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller policy and practice in education, social policy and politics is enriched with reflection, theoretical analysis and biographical narratives. It draws on the author’s 25 years’ experience of working as an activist, educationalist and researcher for Gypsy, Roma and Traveller rights.
Sites of Resistance is essential reading for service providers, campaigners and academics. It illustrates how crucial it is that that those at the margins have agency and are empowered in the quest for social justice, and that those in school, community and the academy who are working ‘with’, ‘for’ or ‘on’ Traveller communities reflect critically on their practice.
