Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This study was written to explore the variables associated with the differences in the degree of assimilation and religiosity between two Arab-Muslim communities in Toledo, Ohio and Detroit, Michigan, both of whom share identical religio-ethnic backgrounds. In the analysis of the data the author attempts to point out the fallacy of the previously assumed negative correlation between the two factors of religiosity and assimilation. The work also examines the socio-economic status of the residents of the two communities, the status of women, intermarriage, ecological patterns, and relationships between the Arab-Muslim communities and their Christian and Jewish neighbors.
