SYNOPSIS : A unique study in American immigraΒ­tion and assimilation history that also provides a special view of one of the smaller ethnic groups in American society. Naff focuses on the pre-World War I pioΒ­neering generation of Arabic-speaking immigrants, the generation that set the patterns for settlement and assimilation. Unlike many immigrants who were drawn to the United States by dreams of industrial jobs or to escape religious or economic persecution, most of these arΒ­tisans and owners of small, disconnected plots of land came to America to engage in the enterprise of peddling. Most planned to stay two or three years and reΒ­turn to their homelands.

SYNOPSIS : "Becoming American, Remaining Jewish traces the development of Wilmington, Delaware's first Jewish community in order to understand what the Jews created and why, what values were reflected in the institutions they established and the causes they advocated, and what changed over the years. Readers concerned about questions of identity and community today will find much stimulating material in this story." "The appendix, which contains the names of more than two thousand adult Jews lived in Wilmington between 1879 and 1920, is the most comprehensive list of early Jewish Wilmingtonians ever published. With its information on country of birth and first occupation, the list is a valuable resource for historians and genealogists."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

SYNOPSIS : Far too many Americans, of all races, are unaware of the pivotal role that people of African descent have played in shaping the US and the world. Even less is known about the role of African peoples in the history of all humankind. Becoming American: The African-American Journey will open their eyesβ€”and enlighten even the already knowledgeable. It features two side-by-side chronological timelines that uniquely contrast the major events and personalities in both African-American and Global/African Diasporan historyβ€”spanning from 4 million BCE to Barack Obama’s momentous presidential campaign. In addition, a carefully-chosen collection of key political, historical, cultural and literary texts, quotes, speeches, and songs document the impact of the black presence in American and world history.
