Zogby, James, Ed.
ADC Issues, 1992
This document reports on an examination of lifestyles, cultures, and heritage of Arab communities within the United States. After a historical overview of the arrival and settling of Arab-Americans in wave after wave of immigration, the work provides close-up views of different communities across the country. Each of those views introduces a few of the people who live in the community. The document includes an examination of Arab-American community building, surveying the different regions in which Arab-Americans have built up business, family ties, education, and social life. In addition, the document offers a look backward at the terms of life and the struggle for recognition and identity of the pioneer and forebears of the present generation. Among the many essays that comprise the work are "Detroit: Our Ellis Island" (Jane Peterson); "Arab Muslims in America: Adaptation and Reform" (Yvonne Haddad); and Talbott Williams'"'Pioneers': The Syrian in America."
