Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article attempts to delineate the political identity of Arab-Americans from the time of their arrival in the United States (ca. 1870s) to the 1980s. Suleiman notes that the immigrants came in essentially two waves, the first ending around World War I, and the second beginning after World War 2. The first of these groups or communities were generally less educated, rather naive, and politically passive. The second group were generally better educated, quite sophisticated, and politically active. The differences in the political orientation and identity of the two groups are detailed and discussed at great length in the text (p. 59).
