Arab Americans and Their Communities of Cleveland
Download/link to full text
The author of this monograph has made a contribution in describing the progress of the Syrian and Lebanese American community in the Cleveland area. These same experiences were similarly reflected in many other communities throughout the land, including my own. This monograph includes not only the early history of these people from their origins in the Mediterranean, it focuses particularly on their daily lives as immigrants to America -- and on the difficulties they encountered in trying to maintain their traditional institutions in a new land. –Excerpt from the Introduction by Danny Thomas, Founder of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Original publication date 1981.
