I am sure Matras, who is a considerable scholar, is not responsible for the blurb for this book.

But it is surely not true that this is anything like the first comprehensive account of Romani language and literature. Equally RNC and RomNews are part of the second generation rather than the first generation of Roma Advocacy and Information services.

It may, when we see it, be an improvement of previous work; but it is simply misleading to pretend there isn't plenty to compare it with, and irresponsible to suggest that Romani Studies isn't a well-established tradition of scholarship.
