Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This work is a socio-historical study of the
Syrian-Lebanese Christians in America. Although it deals in large part with their migration
and assimilation experiences, it also contains data on the authors' attempt to organize the
literature on Syrian-Americans, their Americanization, the relationship between Eastern
rite Catholics (Melkites and Maronites), and the Roman Catholic Church, the transformation
of identities, and the rise of ethnic consciousess among the Christian Arabs.
