The book History, Historians & Development Policy: A Necessary Dialogue, co-authored by H&P partner Simon Szreter, Dr Michael Woolcock, Professor C.A. Bayly and Dr Vijayendra Rao, will be launched on Thursday 29 September 2011.
Becky Taylor, of Birkbeck College, looks at the reasons why Gypsies and Travellers have become more marginalised rather than less over the last century, in the context of the site at Dale Farm in Essex - and looks at the reasons behind social prejudices againt them.
