Format: Paperback
The Jippi-Jappa Hat Merchant and his Family.

This book is not just a collection of first hand stories and anecdotes of the establishment of a middle class educated family in the United Kingdom during the first half of the 20th Century, but also a reference and insights for further studies in Social Anthropology, Social History, Race Relations. "The Jippi- Jappa Hat Merchant and his Family" is one stone more for the study of 20th Century United Kingdom history, that can not be completed without proper attention to the influence of the "aliens" as they were classified by the police registration.

The book has been organised in chronological order to give a voice to each of the six branches of the original family. Each branch has their own way to have their say. Thus, one is moving from the anecdotal, memory base view to the academic one too. All of this makes the book so interesting and informative that one can not leave it until the last paragraph. The values of the original founders of the family were persistently found in each of their six branches: faith, strength, courage, persistence, pride, sense of belonging, spirit of progress/study. And above all unity and love.
