This book asks why several ethnic and linguistic groups in Central Europe
and the Balkans have not yet been legally recognized as national
minorities. Some of these hidden minorities have not developed an
intellectual elite that can visibly present their identity and claims to
the majority population. Other groups are deliberately concealing their
existence and language for reasons of self-protection. The chapters in
this volume address the everyday mechanisms of hiding and being hidden in
the transition zone of these two European regions.
