The Arab community in Australia is one of the oldest and most established of its immigrant ethnic communities. Together, the various works brought together here cover most aspects of Arab–Australian lives that are of importance today: the history of settlement, attitudes about citizenship, Arab women’s activism, Arab antiracism activism, the position of Arab youth between two cultures, nostalgia and homesickness, everyday life in an Arab “ethnic” suburb, and questions of identity.

About the Author:

Ghassan Hage is senior lecturer in social anthropology at the University of Sydney and is a leading scholar in the areas of nationalism, whiteness, multiculturalism, and the immigrant experience. He is the author of White Nation and the coauthor of Homeworld.

Review:

“This important collection raises fundamental questions about citizenship and belonging in an historical era in which identity is even more ethnicised than it used to be, and where struggles over access to citizenship, dispossession and colonialism are heavily invested with ethnic and racial features.” —Australian Book Review


“A well presented collection of essays... Arab perspectives and cultural values are given full play, and a challenging postscript was added after September 11.” —The Australian Higher Education Supplement

Book Description Melbourne University Press, Australia, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Arab people first came to Australia in the late nineteenth century. Today more than half a million Australians claim some form of Arab ancestry. They are a diverse group, both socially and economically. New South Wales, for example, appointed Australia s first Lebanese Governor, while at the same time it was labelling groups of economically deprived young people as Lebanese gangs . Victoria s Premier, Steve Bracks, comes from a Lebanese background. Melbourne has an important Arab business community, while newly arrived Arab immigrants have one of the highest rates of unemployment in the country. Arab-Australians Today raises important questions about immigration, settlement, marginalisation and participation in Western societies. It discusses the way early Arab immigrants were received in Australia and talks about contemporary issues of participation in the Australian political process. It examines the lives of diverse groups of people, ranging from entrepreneurs to Arab women activists to unemployed youth. It analyses issues ranging from the ways Arab-Australians grow to call Australia home, to the moral panic created around Arab youth and criminality. The book. Seller Inventory # AAN9780522849790
