|The web version of this book includes
new passages by the author not found in the original printed version. The
original edition of this book (1987) uses diacritics for Romanian and Romani
(Rromanes), and includes texts in the Cyrillic and Greek alphabets.
When possible, care has been taken to reproduce these diacritics, or their
phonological equivalents. This has not been entirely possible because of
HTML limitations. For a faithful rendition of all diacritics and texts,
it is recommended that the printed version of The Pariah Syndrome
|Throughout, except in quotes from
other works, the spelling Rumania(n), rather than the more widely-accepted
has been preferred in order to distinguish it more readily from Romani.
