The Making of Arab Americans

This book chronicles the emergence of Palestine as the undisputed core issue among the Arabic-speaking diaspora who immigrated to the US from geographic Syria. This process became complete in 1936 when the Arab national league was established in response to the Palestinian revolt and general strike that year.

The Making of Arab Americans relies on hundreds of untapped manuscripts for a deeper understanding of the emergence of Arab national thought, the meaning of Palestine in the US, and the a reassessment of established canons on the immigrants contributions to their homeland.
