Overview

Metropolitan Detroit is home to one of the largest, most diverse Arab communities outside the Middle East, yet the complex world Arabic-speaking immigrants have created there is barely visible on the landscape of ethnic America. In this volume, Nabeel Abraham and Andrew Shryock bring together the work of twenty-five contributors to create a richly detailed portrait of Arab Detroit. Memoirs and poems by Lebanese, Chaldean, Yemeni, and Palestinian writers anchor the book in personal experience, while over fifty photographs provide a backdrop of vivid, often unexpected, images. Panoramic and highly nuanced, "Arab Detroit" shows the extent to which popular notions of tolerance and inclusion have not been applied to Arabs in Detroit and charts the alternative routes by which Arabs enter and influence the American mainstream.
