The book Roma Population on the Peripheries of the Visegrad Countries. Spatial Trends and Social Challenges, edited by János Pénzes and Zsolt Radics, was published as a result of an international project named Roma population on the peripheries of the Visegrad countries that grouped several universities: Department of Social Geography and Regional Development Planning at the University of Debrecen (Hungary), the Institute of Sociology from the University of Miskolc (Hungary), the Department of Geography at the University of Presov (Slovakia), the Institute of Geography and Spatial Management at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland), the Department of Geography at the J.E.Purkinje University in Ustinad Labem (Czech Republic). The condition of Roma in the peripheries of Visegrad Counties still is problematic and far from good. The author focus mainly on their living conditions and culture. They consider that the more we know about Gypsy communities, the better we can integrate them. This book brings an important contribution for the increase of knowledge about Gypsies.
