Description

This collection of essays addresses various aspects of Arab and Jewish immigration and acculturation in Latin America. The volume examines how the Latin American elites who were keen to change their countries' ethnic mix felt threatened by the arrival of Arabs and Jews.

Reviews

"The articles bring important and interesting information about the insertion of Arabs and Jews in countries where it was (and still is) expected that all ethnic groups conform to the official construction of a national identity." - Sonia Bloomfield, University of Brasília – Retired; Bulletin of Latin American Research Vol. 30, No. 3
