Get Cirkus- og gøglerslægter: miljø og stamtavler (Danish PDF

Anders Enevigs optegnelser over de danske cirkus- og gøglerslægters miljøer og stamtavler er et enestående kulturhistorisk og antropologisk dokument udarbejdet med gøglerslægternes gamle. Han når frem til mange overraskende konklusioner i løbet af bogen, for eksempel at alle gamle danske cirkusser er grundlagt af naked thirteen "rejsende" familier, der af resten af samfundet blev set som sigøjnere.

Bogen er spændende for alle, der interesserer sig for etnografi og kulturhistorie, og et uvurderligt opslagsværk for efterkommere af gøglerslægter, der ønsker at undersøge deres egne rødder.

Anders Enevig (f. 1923-2013) var en dansk forfatter, historiker og modstandsmand. Han er særligt kendt for sine realistiske og hjertevarme skildringer af gøglere, cirkusartister, sigøjnere, sprittere og andre subsistensløse, som han blandt andet mødte som politibetjent på Nørrebro. Anders Enevig var desuden en af drivkræfterne bag kampen for bevaring af Cirkusbygningen, som efter årevis af utrætteligt arbejde blev renoveret i 1983 og fredet i 1988.
