Ambiguous Insiders: An Investigation of Arab American Invisibility.
Ethnic and Racial Studies, v23 n1 p37-61 Jan 2000
Explores Arab American invisibility as a central theme in the historical narrative of Arab immigrants and their descendants in North America. Addresses invisibility in terms of their paradoxical positioning within the U.S. racial/ethnic classification system. Argues that four central paradoxes shape their identity, noting that each paradox reinforces the difficulties associated with classifying this population. (SM)
