Taking Root: Arab-American Community Studies, Volume II.
Hooglund, Eric, Ed.
This book is the second in a series of works that seeks to examine the Arab-American experience. The original 1984 publication, "Taking Root, Bearing Fruit: The Arab-American Experience" featured surveys of 12 communities in all geographic regions of the United States. Such was the response to that report that its creators decided to continue the series until they studied all Arab-American communities. Chapters in the second volume include: (1) "Mosque on the Prairie" (Gregory Orfalea); (2) "Dabkeh in the Delta" (Joseph Schechla); (3) "The Mohameds in Mississippi" (Joseph Schechla); (4) "Syrians in Tin City" (Anthony B. Toth); (5) "Mahrajan in Michigan" (Christopher Mansour); (6) "Celebrating Tradition in Rhode Island" (Eleanor Doumato); and (7) "Going Home" (Eugene Tinory). The book includes a preface and an introduction and notes on the contributors. (SG)
