This book is seminal in Arab American Studies and a significant contribution to Ethnic Studies. The book is compromised of an excellent introduction by the late Michael Suleiman and twenty chapters, each written by a well-known scholar in the field. These chapters are divided into six sections: profiles of specific communities (with case studies), Arabs and the American legal system, youth and family, health and welfare issues, political activism and Arab-American identity negotiations. The book covers most issues concerning Arab Americans – who are both Muslim and Christian, American and Canadian. There are a few outstanding chapters: one by Louise Cainkar, discussing Arab immigrants in Chicago, another by Helen Samhan titled on the race classification of Arab Americans and the another by Theresa Saliba on Arab Americans in academia and activism illustrating how and when Arab American academics are shut out of the conversations for not being acknowledged as minorities.

Not having any Arabic descent within my family, reading Michael Suleiman's book and taking a class soley directed on Arab-Americans was an advantageous learning experience.

The title, "Building a New Future", is the guideline for new immigrants. I feel as if I am somewhat a part of the Arabic culture because I've learned so much valuable information that many are still not aware of. This book, along with my class, covered many relevant topics associated with Arab-Americans and showed their true experience as immigrants. Although I was never really interested in this culture prior, I am looking to study more on Arab-Americans and also inform others. I recommend this book to anyone who might be interested in learning or furthering their knowledge on this topic.
