This book is a collection of articles and research materials on Arab-Americans.

Authors of this section include Alixa Naff, Najib E. Saliba, Philip M. Kayal, and Yvonne Haddad. Part two consists of several case studies of Arab communities in the Detroit (MI) metropolitan area. These articles are: "Detroit's Arab-American Community: A Survey of Diversity and Commonality," by Sameer Y. Abraham; "The Yemeni Immigrant Community of Detroit: Background, Emigration, and Community Life," by Nabeel Abraham; "Detroit's Iraqi-Chaldeans: A Conflicting Conception of Identity," by Mary C. Sengstock; "The Lebanese Maronites: Patterns of Continuity and Change," by May Ahdab-Yehia; and "The Southend: An Arab Muslim Working-Class Community," by Sameer Y.
