Abstract:

After the passage of the 1965 immigration and Naturalization Act, for the first time in U.S. history, the United States acquired a large group of immigrants from Arab Muslim countries. This immigration is so recent that relatively little is known about it. This thesis is a demographic and cultural examination of the Arab community in America. It asks, who the Arab-Americans are, where they come from, where they go in America, how they are assimilating, and how they organize and act socially, culturally, and politically. A key question is how cohesive they are as a community which is likely to be both a new and distinctive voice in American society and political life.
