Damn, I didn't even know this existed, but it looks quite good. My French is quite poor, though, so getting through it would be a real headache. Based on the info I could find, it seems like a pretty disciplined and multivalent ethnographic study. The most similar flamenco scholarship I can think of to something like this is the work of Cristina Cruces Roldán.

If you get a hold of a copy, let us know what you think!

My two cents:
Definitely an ethnographic text. Pasqualino's goal was to examine the Gitano society in Andalucia. After a disappointing encounter with the Gitanos of Seville, she decided flamenco might be a vehicle to gain access to the otherwise reticent Gitanos. She focusses on 2 communities in Jerez de la Frontera and describes flamenco-fiestas as ritualized forms for wooing, engagement, marriage, and baptism. She underlines the importance of the Semana Santa. Flamenco is shown to be a central factor in identification processes for the Gitanos.

Although her ethnographic analysis isn't quite free of romanticism, her description of Gitano life in the 80s is fascinating.

Even amongst small local communities of gypsies, my gitano friends might point the finger to warn me....”Ricardo see those gypsies that hangout over there... those are the bad gypsies stay away from them!”
