Also available in an e-book format (1931446202, $10.95), Egyptian Romany: The Essence Of Hispania by Egyptologist and historian Moustafa Gadalla surveys 6,000 years of Iberian history to reveal the cultural roots of the Romany (Gypsies) to ultimately derive from ancient Egypt. Moustafa draws upon his original research to reveal and document the relationship between Egypt and Hispania through several factors including archeology, history, culture, ethnology, linguistics, and more. Moustafa is a master at historical research and has often brought to the study of history (especially Egyptian history) a novel and iconoclastic perspective that is buttressed by impeccable research and an articulate presentation of often surprising and long obscured data. Egyptian Romany is enthusiastically recommended reading for students of Egyptology, Hispanic history, and Romany culture.
