Race and Arab Americans Before and After 9/11 by Amaney A. Jamal

Book Description

Bringing the rich terrain of Arab American histories to bear on conceptualizations of race in the U.S., this groundbreaking volume fills a critical gap in the field of ethnic studies. Unlike most immigrant communities who either have been consistently marked as "non-white," or have made a transition from "non-white" to "white," Arab Americans historically have been rendered "white" and have increasingly come to be seen as "non-white." This book highlights emergent discourses on the distinct ways that race matters to the study of Arab American histories and asks essential questions. What is the relationship between U.S. imperialism in Arab homelands and anti-Arab racism in the lives of Arab Americans? What are the relationships between religion, class, gender, and anti-Arab racism? What is the significance of whiteness studies to Arab American studies? Transcending multiculturalist discourses after September 11 that have simply "added on" the category "Arab American" to the landscape of U.S. ethnic and racial studies, this volume locates September 11 as a turning point, rather than a beginning, in the history of Arab American engagements with race, multiculturalism, and Americanization.

Books By Author Amaney A. Jamal

Of Empires and Citizens by Amaney A. Jamal Of Empires and Citizens, Paperback (September 2012)

Examining such countries as Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Palestine, and Saudi Arabia, this title explores how Arab citizens decide whether to back existing regimes, regime transitions, and democratization projects, and how the global position of Arab states shapes people's attitudes toward their governments.

Barriers to Democracy by Amaney A. Jamal Barriers to Democracy, Paperback (July 2009)

Investigates the role of civic associations in promoting democratic attitudes and behavioral patterns in contexts that are less than democratic. This work argues that, in state-centralized environments, associations can just as easily promote civic qualities vital to authoritarian citizenship - such as support for the regime in power.
