Arabs in the Americas: Interdisciplinary Essays on the Arab Diaspora comprises twelve essays by Arab and non-Arab writers from the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the Middle East. Offering more than just an introduction or a celebration of the Arab American presence in the Americas, the essays aim at expanding readers’ understanding of what it means to be part of the Arab diaspora and to live in the Americas. Chapters are written from a wide range of experiences and academic disciplines, and focus on ethnic and cultural studies, American studies, and Arab studies and examine important aspects of the Arab diaspora in the United States, Canada, and Latin America. Organized into four sections, "Arriving in the Americas," "The Experience of the Americas," "Assessing the Americas," and "After 9/11," this book features different experiences of Arabs living in North and South America from a perspective that is both scholarly and reflective.
